Special Education Notice - School supporting transitions from primary to secondary schools 2022

Sent to head teachers on 24 May 2022.

The transition from primary to secondary school has always been difficult for some young people, particularly those with social emotional and mental health needs. As a consequence of the pandemic, lockdowns and breaks in routine with resulting gaps in learning, there is evidence that these needs have been amplified.

In order to support the transition of pupils as we head into the 2022/23 academic year, the Local Authority is once again offering a grant which can be accessed by secondary schools within the borough of Telford & Wrekin. This is to support the initial bridge between primary and secondary provision.  

Secondary schools are able to bid for up to £8000 in order to support this work. The collective aim will be to intervene early, minimise placement breakdown and encourage good attendance.

A summary of interventions used in 2021/22 and details of how to apply this year are available to download:
