As soon as we know that students with SEND will definitely be attending our school we start finding out more about them. This allows for preparatory planning of their needs and ensures that they settle happily into our school. St Augustine’s works closely with primary schools or other educational settings and our SENCo/Deputy SENCo and Nurture Group teacher will attend prospective students’ Annual Review meetings when possible. Furthermore, our transition team runs 6-week Transition group programme, which allows the school to further get to know the students and help students make a positive and smooth transfer from primary to secondary school. St. Augustine’s strongly encourages parent/carers of students with an EHCP, and primary SENCo/Key Workers to visit the school or contact our SENCo/Deputy SENCo or transition officer before naming the school.
