The SEND department in Slough Borough Council manage admissions for all children with EHCPs who are looking for school places. We receive a consultation with information about the child’s SEN. We then assess the needs of the child outlined in their plan and check that we can meet the needs of that pupil within our setting.
There may be times when we decide that it is not in the best interest of the child to attend Priory school, but this would always be in accordance with the SEND Code of Practice (2014) and would be detailed in our response letter.
At Priory school we believe that transition is a process and not an event. Therefore, our transition processes start taking place as early as possible. Each child will be provided a transition booklet and a social story that will help them process the change. Visits to new classes, meet teachers and staff and time with other pupils in their class will also be arranged.
For a child moving onto secondary school, we understand that this is an anxious time for both parent and pupil. We follow Local Authority arrangements and have strong links with local secondary schools. In addition, secondary school staff are invited to the final Annual review for children who have an EHCP.
