Transition to College

The transition review meeting is always held in the Autumn term so that there is plenty of time to work closely with the next setting on sharing of information and visits. Your college of choice is invited to the review meeting so that you can hear more about them and they start to gather information about your child. The colleges always have Open Days where you can visit. It is always good to have visited colleges before the Transition review meeting so you are clear on which college you want to attend the meeting.

Blackfriars complete Transition Information forms and often videos that can be shared with the colleges. All professionals involved with your child pass on relevant information and often attend the meeting: VI/HI, Speech, Physio, School Nurse etc. We then take the students on visits to their next setting so they feel familiar and comfortable before the move.
