School has excellent transition procedures for learners joining Rice Lane or moving on to the next stage of their education.
When a learner joins Rice Lane the SENCo meets with key persons from the previous setting and gains as much information as possible. The child may be invited for transition visits and may be given photographs of Rice Lane and Rice Lane staff. If a child joins mid-year the process is the same, depending on how much notice we have been given.
When learners move on to a new year group the necessary level of support is given.
When a learner moves onto the next stage of their education the SENCo discusses the individual's needs with the SENCo at their new setting and helps the learner prepare for their new adventure.
