Transition

Primary to Secondary Transition Offer

Southall School is committed to supporting all of our students to transition smoothly from their primary education settings through a flexible and needs responsive transition process to ensure the best possible outcomes for them in their secondary education.

It is recognised that, as a special school, the transition process can be particularly complex for our students as their individual needs can vary widely. We therefore offer a comprehensive transition provision which can be seen in three levels:

a. Universal – provision in place for all pupils transitioning to Southall

b. Targeted – additional provision provided by the school for to meet individual pupils’ specific needs

c. Specialist – specialist provision provided by the school which may include the involvement of specialist professional.

Transition provision is personalised in response to each pupil’s individual needs as identified in their Education and Health Care Plans, observations and discussions with professionals and family members. This process begins at least a year before our year 7 students join us.
