Transition Guidance and Helpful Resources for Early Years Settings and Schools

Preparing children and young people for transition during Covid-19

Over 50 people, including partners from schools, education services, Stockport family, health services and parent/carers  have been working hard behind the scenes to co-produce set of transition guidance papers and resources. We hope that this guidance will help provide a meaningful and smooth transition for all CYP across Stockport. This information has been shared with schools and settings to provide support and a guide in relation to good practice. It is then the schools decision on how they manage transition with you as families, but it is hoped the resources where used may support this process.

Working parties linked to the key transition phases were created; these working parties have initially focussed on the COVID 19 response to transition, considering specific actions that need to be carried out remotely. In addition, the guidance explores what transition support may be needed for those children and young people needing a more targeted approach, including those with SEND. This means considering a graduated response to transition which recognises that different levels of support will be needed. 

The resources developed (found in the drop down menus below) include support and advice for settings, schools and parents/carers which we hope will help you to feel empowered and supported through the transition process, ensuring a human response, following the rupture and possible trauma during the COVID-19 situation.
