Transition from Primary School to Secondary School for Students with Special Educational Needs
MetadataShow full item record
The transition period between key stage 2 and key stage 3 is a worrying time for any child, let alone a child with a learning difficulty or a special educational need. There are many ways in which this transition period can be made easier and less daunting for the SEN student and there are numerous forms of support available for them to receive. This research project investigates the roles that the SENCOs and teaching staff play when aiding their students in the transfer and will give a discussion as to whether the transfer policies currently in place are enough to ensure a smooth transition. The findings throughout this project allow a discussion of what teachers currently in the SEN profession believe their roles to be during the transition and if they think that their LEA is putting effective strategies in place for the transition process to be an exciting time rather than a discouraging period. Through the analysis and responses of six SENCOs the researcher was able to conclude and discuss the different opinions each of these respondents had on the support available for transition students dealing with SEN. This project suggests that communication between the Primary school and the feeder Secondary school is vital for a transition to be successful and effective.
