Virtual School - Resources for CLA and Previously CLA

Transitions can be very difficult for Previously CLA, the following considerations should be made:

  • Work with all professionals to create an agreed transition plan so everyone knows the full accurate situation and who is responsible for what
  • Take away as many anxieties as possible - visit prior to the start date, meet new staff, create a transition book with photographs, find a school buddy at the new setting, 
  • Make sure all possessions travel with the child - all school work, 
  • Facilitate meaningful hellos/goodbyes with key staff
  • Create space and provide an appropriate adult to talk through what and why things are changing
