Our school transition services provide benefits to both home and education settings.

What happens during school transition services?

School transition services include a range of services, such as; assessments, interventions, training and consultancy. Our transition services include both direct and indirect work according to circumstances.

For individuals

When working with an individual we would take the unique situation into account and assess them in relation to coping with change, for example their resilience. Interventions for individuals could involve exploring the transition and upcoming changes. Exploring the changes would lead to the development of personalised strategies to use during the upcoming transition. Parents and carers can request our school transition services for a child or young person who finds school transitions difficult.

For groups

Interventions for groups would involve exploring the transition and upcoming changes. The group would work together to develop strategies they could use to support each other through the transition process. For children and young people transitioning to the same school this level of peer support should reduce some anxiety caused by the upcoming transition.

For whole school

Whole school consultancy could involve a variety of reactive and proactive services according to the circumstances. Consultancy services are useful for; vulnerable or challenging cohorts, implementing or adapting a transition policy and other systemic work. Our psychologists may also deliver training around positive transitions to help education staff promote a calm and happy transition.

What happens after school transition services?

Our school transition services can happen before, during or after the transition which means that we can be involved at all stages of the process. Following our involvement we can provide follow up services if required. If reports are required then we can provide them. We can also help to create a personal document to advise adults in the transition process of how best to support an individual.

Our school transition services are accessible to education settings, parents and carers on an individual, group and systemic level.
