When to start

It is recommended that students and their parents and carers, primary school principal and school learning and support team begin planning:

  • Early in the year before starting high school for a student with disability and additional learning and support needs­.
  • Up to two years before starting high school for a student needing help with access or mobility, e.g. for wheelchair access or if other significant changes to the high school environment may be required.
  • Discussions begin with a student's current school learning and support team and may involve identifying:
  • Which educational option best suits a student's individual learning and support needs in high school.
  • Any adjustments that may be necessary for a successful transition to a new environment, such as access to technology, large print, visual supports, building modifications.
  • Key contacts at the intended high school.
  • Processes for transferring information about a student's individual education needs.
  • A timeline for the transition process.
