Code: EAY/19/483/P Supporting smooth transitions briefing

As part of the HCC commissioned transition project, the Herts for Learning Early Years team are providing briefing sessions to share details of the project, the transition level of need pathway and provide each school with a copy of the transition toolkit. The overall focus of the project is to ensure a smooth transition for all children, including those at risk of underachievement.

The aim of the briefing is for early years practitioners working in school nursery and reception classes to receive information on the transition level of need pathway and tools developed as part of the project. It will be important that practitioners gain an understanding of how this can support early identification of those children with potential barriers to learning and help enable them to experience a smooth transition to school.

A transition toolkit will be provided for each school with a range of resources to support transition practice.
