Planning an effective transition from reception to YR1

Home > Planning an effective transition from reception to YR1

The training is aimed to support schools in understanding the principles and processes which underpin the EYFS and YR1curriculum. It will involve developing excellent and effective transition procedures and practice. You will also consider what an ‘effective’ transition policy should include to support children’s transition from the end of EYFS to YR1. You will be evaluating curriculum provision at the point of transition and beyond and reviewing teaching and learning strategies across both key stages.


The course will help you develop clear and effective communication between all involved in the transition journey.
