Parent carers informed the development of a Transitions Pathway Map. The map begins at Year 9 and carries through to early adulthood, and takes you through the information you need to help with planning at various stages in your young person's progression towards adulthood.
The following drop-down menus break the information on the map into manageable chunks and is arranged in school years from year nine.
Step 1: The SEND Lead Worker (SLW) will have a discussion with your son/daughter to provide information on the transition process and options. The SLW will liaise with the social worker (SW) where one is allocated.
Step 2: The school will co-ordinate transition planning, linked to Preparing for Adulthood (PfA) outcomes (Employment, Independent Living, Community Inclusion, Health), which will form part of the Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP). The SLW will provide support as appropriate.
Step 3: The school/college will organise the Annual Review, and the SLW will attend wherever possible. Actions will be agreed and followed up.
Step 1: The school or college will provide impartial careers advice (ongoing between years 8 and 12).
Step 2: The SEND Lead Worker (SLW) will attend the Annual Review wherever possible. The Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) will be reviewed. The SLW will amend the plan if necessary.
Option 1: If your son/daughter plans to leave school at the end of year 11 the SLW will support them to identify post school options and future support needs.
Option 2: If your son/daughter decides to stay at school after year 11, the school will work with them to look at 6th form options.
Step 1: The SEND Lead Worker (SLW) will attend the Annual Review wherever possible.
Step 2: The SLW will liaise with local colleges to ensure that they can meet your son/daughter's needs and outcomes, and will share the Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) with them.
Option 1: If your son/daughter decides to leave school at the end of year 11 and has not been offered a local college place, the SLW will provide support with looking at further options.
Option 2: If your son/daughter decides to leave school at the end of year 11 and a place at a local college has been agreed, the EHCP will be updated.
Option 3: If your son/daughter decides to stay at school post 16 the school will continue to work with them to secure the most appropriate options.
Step 3: If there is a need for support as an adult, the SLW will liaise with the relevant social work teams to see if a transition assessment is appropriate.
Step 1: Either the SEND Lead Worker (SLW) or social worker (SW) (if allocated) will attend the Annual Review wherever possible.
Option 1: If your son/daughter is moving on from education the Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) will cease.
Option 2: If your son or daughter decides to stay in education for year 14 transition plans for the end of year 14 will be agreed and the EHCP may be updated.
Option 2a: At the end of year 14 the EHCP will normally cease if the education or training outcomes have been met.
Step 3: Either the college, SLW, or the SW if allocated, will provide information on the options.
