Preparing for Secondary School

Deciding on a secondary school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will make as a parent/carer.

If your child has special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), please explore the resources available to support your decision-making process:

If you still have questions, call the SEND department on 020 8489 1913 or email sendphasetransfers@haringey.gov.uk

We will also be running our special SEND secondary transfer hotline week in October – more details will be available nearer the time.

Online workshop: choosing a secondary school with the SEND Education Inclusion Team

In June 2023, we hosted an online workshop which was: 

  • an event for families of children with SEND preparing for choosing their secondary school
  • a chance to hear from other parents, and secondary Special Educational Needs Co-ordinators (SENCos) from both mainstream and special schools in the borough
  • this event is aimed at parents/carers of year 5 children with SEND, but parents of year 4 children are also welcome

If you were unable to attend our workshop in June 2023, please view the presentation and Q&A, below:
