Excellence for all – Excellence from all

Admission / Transition Arrangements


Pre-school/Nursery settings

Our Academy works closely with pre-school/Nursery settings. Any child/ren starting in Reception with an additional need will have a transition meeting involving the SENCo, Foundation Stage Leader, parents/carers in their last term at Nursery. The Nursery staff, SENCo and Foundation Stage Leader will discuss appropriate strategies to support these children. The Reception Teacher has individual meetings with all parents/carers of the children starting in September.

Non-Routine Admissions (NRA)

For children entering other Year groups at different times other than September (Non Routine Admissions), the child and their parents/carers will be invited to visit Roseacre Academy. The SENCo will then liaise with the child’s previous school to establish if any specialist provision has been/is required to support the child. In order to provide appropriate support when he /she arrives in our Academy information will be shared with relevant staff to ensure as smooth a transition as possible.

Transition to High School

The Transition begins in the Summer term. This involves the following-

1. A visit to the receiving High School by the SENCo and Year 6 Team leader to take part in a transition meeting.

2. Contact between the SENCo and Year 6 Team Leader and the feeder school SENCo to discuss pupils with SEND and the support that they have received and if this needs to be continued.

3. In addition to the Taster Day some children will require additional visits to familiarise themselves with their new High school and to meet key staff.

4. Where children have more specific SEND needs, the process of transition may be more intensive and involve other professionals and agencies.
