Frequently Asked Questions:
The member of staff responsible for transition and the SENCO liaise with primary schools regarding students who will require support when they start at Boston Spa School. Parents are invited to speak to the SENCO during Open Evening at the beginning of Year 6 and again in Year 7.
Transition from Secondary
SEND students may have a mentor in school who can help prepare them for transition. This may be at a practical level, such as application form completion, or on a wider basis, supporting preliminary visits and meetings. Students are encouraged to attend their own review meetings to help plan for future transition. Students with a Statement or EHC plan can receive support from Complex Needs to ensure their transition is smooth.
