Tower Hamlets Transfer and Transition Policy Our vision To move from birth to adulthood children need to be supported to enjoy the new opportunities they face on this exciting journey. Our transfer and transition policy aims to ensure that times and events likely to cause the most anxiety for children are faced with confidence and resilience by every child, with particular support for those facing the most challenging circumstances; ensuring children are able to use their new experiences as they become successful adults. Our principles To achieve this we have four over-arching principles: S upporting children to manage change E ncouraging parental engagement E nsuring information exchange D eveloping professional capacity This policy gives initial guidance on how these can be used at key transition and transfer times, and how they can support particularly vulnerable groups. Much more detailed guidance is found in supporting documents which are referenced during the text of this document. Terminology Throughout this document the term parent is used to cover parents and carers. The assumption is made that these will be adults over 18 years old. The term transfer generally applies to moves which involve the child moving from one setting to another, transitions are changes in provision within the same setting.

Supporting children to manage change All of us find change challenging. To support children at times of change professionals should think through the checklist below to ensure they are minimising the potential impact of any transfer/transition on a child’s developmental progress. For all children Have the children been given enough accessible information about the change/new setting? Have they been to visit and been able to follow this up?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
