Transition for children with SEND

Moving from one school/setting/class to another can be stressful, and while all children and young people benefit from a positive transition, some who have additional needs may find transitions more challenging than their peers and will require enhanced support.


At Elmhurst, we pride ourselves on our transition work with our pupils. Towards the end of June every year, we put a plan in place to mitigate any of their worries or concerns moving up a year.


We have adopted the Rainbow Transition program, which is proving to be a success for our pupils who were struggling with anxieties around transitioning.
