‘Transition’ describes the movement that takes place from one familiar setting to another. It is defined as the process where policy and practice has been adapted to support children in settling in to their new learning environment in preparation for future learning and development.

Children at West Park Academy make several transitions:

  • Into the Foundation Stage
  • From Foundation Stage to Year 1
  • From one class to another
  • From Year 6 to secondary school
