Transitions forms - updated for Covid recovery
The Early Years Achievement Service has updated some Transitions Audit documents for use during Covid recovery:
- Transitions Audit for Early Year Settings - Covid Recovery July 2020
- Transitions Audit for Reception and Year 1 Teachers - Covid Recovery July 2020
Transitions forms for transferring a child from pre-school to school are available to download below.
These documents are optional, and settings may use their own versions if they prefer. The forms are available as Word documents and each section can be expanded if completed electronically. The 'prompts' document contains some ideas for completing the first page, but the most important thing is to paint an accurate picture of the child, with input from those who know the child best, taking into account the child's own views. If you have completed a one-page profile for a child, then it is good practice to include this with any transfer documents.
