Transition from Year 6 to Year 7
Student needs are carefully considered to ensure that Pioneer House High School can indeed provide the right educational environment to meet individual student needs. EHC Plans inform admissions (taking in to account both prior levels of attainment and additional needs). Meetings with parents, visits to pupils in their current schools and discussions with current school staff and other professionals all provide valuable information to support appropriate placement.
Once it has been agreed that the school can provide the right educational experience for an individual, a transition programme is put in place in the Summer Term to allow a number of supported visits to Pioneer House High School, over a period of weeks, and where possible supported by sta from the current school. Transition is supported by printed and digital resources, summer school transition visits and personalised materials to allow familiarisation with the school before arrival and admission.
