The Academy strives to develop relationships with Primary schools and support all students in their transition to secondary school.
When a Primary school or external agency invite RRMA to any meetings for students intending to transition to us, we will always ensure an appropriate member of the team attends.
RRMA currently works with students from Y5 to prepare a tailored transition that ensures students are successful.
An appropriate member of the SENs team will attend all EHCP reviews in order to plan and support and effective transition to secondary school.
Tailored transitions can include:
A walk around the building – as many times as you need! Parents are welcome to join in.
1:1 time in the SENs department
Small group sessions in the SENs department with peers
Staff may (if appropriate) come and spend time with the student in the primary school to develop a relationship
Activities / interventions in the library
The SENs department will strive to meet any requirements an individual child has in order to ensure they have a positive experience when transitioning.
Post 16 Transition
At Richard Rose Morton Academy we work closely with the local authority and external agencies to ensure that students leaving RRMA have a supportive and effective transition to any post 16 choices they make.
We work closely with Inspira, Social Care (where appropriate), Colleges and 6th Forms to ensure our students receive the best transition possible.
All relevant agencies will be invited to EHCP reviews from year 10 in order to ensure continuity of the transition.
The SENs team will accompany students and parents on visits to post 16 institutions and support with advice and access to relevant professionals and additional sevices as much as possible.
- Arrange visits
- Accompany students on visits
- Attend / organise meetings inviting all relevant parties
- Support in ensure effective communication with everyone involved
