Secondary Years

Things to consider in your child’s Secondary years
Moving from primary school Yr6 into Yr7 secondary school can be a struggle for any child but this can be even more so when a young person has Special Educational Needs (SEN) and/or disabilities. Whether they are staying in mainstream or moving from mainstream into special provision or vice versa there are many aspects to plan for.


Transition is a term used when school, parents and other professionals like Social Workers, CAMHS etc start planning for the young person leaving secondary school. This process start around the age of 13 (Yr9) and should continue up to 25 years when your young adult has settled into adult life.


This section will help provide answers to the questions you may have during this time.
