What do we mean when we say transition?

We mean:

  • Any time in a child or young person’s life where there is a planned change that needs to be effectively prepared for.  This is so that they can be happy and fulfilled. This includes transitions across Education, Health and Care.

Children and young people go through lots of transition points. This includes moving between classes, schools, support services and into adult life.

Transition Core Principles have been co-produced in Sheffield. They:

  • create best practice to support young people going through important transitions.
  • support those with additional needs. This is because young people with SEND will need earlier and detailed planning.
  • help the transition be successful.
