Preparing children with SEN for the transition to Post Primary School
Starting post primary school is a huge transition for our 6th class students, and while it is exciting, it can also be the source of much anxiety for students, especially those with special educational needs. Students need to be adequately prepared and supported to ensure a smooth and successful transition. For children with complex SEN, the NCSE recommends that planning for the transition to post primary should start when the child is in 4th or 5th Class.
This webinar will outline the steps that class and SET teachers should take in preparing students for the transition to post primary school. It will give a brief overview of the changes that have taken place at post primary level in recent years (and that primary teachers need to know about in order to prepare their students), suggest practical steps to make sure their students know what to expect and have the skills they will need, give an overview of how information is passed on to the PP school, and hi-light resources and guidance that are available to help.
Target audience: SET, special class, and mainstream class teachers of pupils with SEN who are in 4th, 5th and 6th class.
