Welcome to Malden Manor Primary School

Welcome to Malden Manor, where our aim is to provide an educational experience of the highest quality for all the children in our care. By creating an inclusive and stimulating learning environment, we seek to capture pupils’ interest, extend their knowledge and raise their aspirations. Our teaching and learning is designed to bring learning to life, both in the classroom and through a variety of inspiring experiences in the wider community. In line with our objective of being the best we can be, we encourage children to take an active role in their education, developing the skills they need for independent learning. Parental involvement is vital for children to achieve their best so it is encouraged at every stage of learning.

Malden Manor is a vibrant and welcoming community in which we strive for the highest standards of attainment – whether academic, artistic or sporting. We find and nurture hidden talents, celebrating the strengths of every child.

Our expectations in terms of both learning and behaviour are high and the children respond with delightful enthusiasm, politeness and consideration for others. Our broad curriculum and rich programme of extra-curricular activities – including the popular breakfast and after-school clubs – provide a well-rounded education, supported by excellent pastoral care. Together with my team of dedicated staff and governors, I invite you to visit the school to see for yourself the fantastic opportunities it offers your child.

SEND Information Report 10

10. How will Malden Manor prepare and support my child to transfer to a school or the next stage of education and life?

  • We recognise that transition, for whatever reason, can produce anxieties and worries for both the families and children where there is a special educational need and aim to offer whatever support is required to ensure transition is as smooth as possible
  • If your child is
  • moving to or from another school:
  • We receive/make contact the school’s SENCo and ensure information is shared regarding any special arrangements or supports that need to be made for your child
  • We will ensure that all records about your child are passed on/ received as soon as possible
  • moving classes in school:
  • Information will be passed on to the new class teacher in advance and in most cases, a planning meeting will take place with the new teacher. All Personal Provision Plans will be shared with the new teacher
  • A ‘transition book’ will be made for children who we feel would benefit and visits to the new classroom will be timetabled to help familiarise and reduce anxieties

in Year 6 - moving to Secondary School:

  • Our Inclusion Leader/ SENCo attends a local Authority ‘Transition Day’ which provides opportunity to discuss specific needs of any child with a special educational need, with the SENCo and transition/year 7 teacher of the secondary school they will be moving to
  • If appropriate, children can take part in a small group within school, to support their understanding of the changes ahead.
  • Before transfer, discussion takes place with each child, to find out their views, including what they would like their new schools or new class teacher to know about themselves, what helps them learn and how they would like to be supported
  • This may include creating a ‘Communication Passport’ which includes information about themselves for their new school
  • Where possible children will visit their new school on several occasions and usually staff from the new school will visit Malden Manor to speak with transferring pupils
  • Class teacher and SENCo/ Inclusion Leader will meet or speak with the appropriate professional at the secondary school and pass information needed, to ensure that the child and family have the right support and provision in their new setting
  • We realise each child has different needs and recognise that for some a more personalised approach may be needed. We would therefore encourage parents to discuss their views with the Inclusion Leader/SENCo so we can work together to ensure the right support is in place.
