Moving on: a guide for teachers of children with special educational needs (SEN)

This guide has been produced to help teachers of children with Special Educational Needs make the transition from primary to secondary education as simple as possible, through careful planning and effective liaison between both schools.

We've taken into account the fact that different teachers will have varying time available to them for planning transition for their pupils, so the guide includes:

  • quick tips which can be implemented fast
  • additional strategies requiring more planning
  • longer term ideas requiring a more strategic approach.

Different pupils will require differing approaches, but this guide will help teachers supporting SEN pupils through this phase to ensure that the change is as smooth as possible.
