Plymouth Enhanced Transition Framework: Early years through to KS4

In Plymouth, we have worked with schools to produce a framework to support children who are making the transition from early years right through to secondary school, it is called the 'Plymouth Enhanced Transitions Framework.

The level of vulnerability and their need for enhanced transition support will be identified as Universal, Targeted or Specialist.

All schools are expected to pay regard to this document when planning transitions. The tools available in the document also support children and young people moving between classes and year groups at both primary and secondary school.

Within the Enhanced Transition Framework, there are a number of appendices that support the planning process at all levels. Please find all relevant information below.
