Moving from primary school to high school is an important life event and can be a positive and exciting time. Yet some children require additional support. Children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) often find transition more challenging than their peers.

This workshop is for parents/carers of children in Years 4, 5 and 6. It is based on research into what makes for a successful transition. It will cover:

  • Some practical approaches that schools can use to support a smooth transition
  • How parents / carers can prepare and support their children for the move to high school

There will be plenty of time for questions and discussion.

The workshop is FREE to attend for parents and carers of children with SEND who live in Manchester or go to a Manchester-based school. Booking is essential.

Please note that this is an online session. The Zoom link will be sent to you by email after booking.
