Education for All information for Year 6 Families
A message to all year 6 students from Sheffield City Council Education for All.
Mainstream Advice & Phase Transfer drop-in support sessions
We know that transition to a new school can be an uncertain time for children and young people and their families. It can also be a time of excitement and opportunity for the next stages of education. We know it can be disappointing for families when they don’t get their first choice of school. It’s really important to make this as positive as possible for every child and young person.
Most children with SEND who have an Education Health Care Plan (EHCP) go to a mainstream school or setting. There are social, emotional and academic benefits for children who remain with their school friends and maintain their community links.
The Sheffield SEND Services have put together a helpful document. It gives information and advice on how mainstream education supports those with SEND. We encourage you to read this. Contact details are on the document should you want to get in touch with any questions.
The service are also offering Phase Transfer drop-in support sessions for families. These will be on Microsoft Teams:
