How will my child be supported moving to Catchgate Primary School?

We know how important it is to you and your child to feel that their new school understands their needs. We also recognise the importance of you and your child getting to know the staff in the new school and their new learning environment.


We, therefore, work closely with other schools to get to know your pupil and make sure they know us, before they arrive for their first day. We will speak to the SENCO in their previous school to ensure we understand their needs and will attend their final review. Your child will also have an opportunity to visit our school to look around and come to transition days where they will work with their new teacher.


How will my child be supported moving from Catchgate Primary School to another school?

We work closely with the SENCO and staff in the school your child will move to in order to ensure they understand their needs fully. Your child will visit the school to look around and will also go to some lessons there. Staff from the receiving school will also come to work with your child and their friends in our school.


The Transition Policy below has full details of the procedures of transition at all stages and support offered to all pupils and their families.
