Abstract: We have contextualised our findings from the case studies of schools in Hartlepool with reference to the previous research we undertook (for the DETR) into a national study of LEA responses to issues of transition and transfer. We were able to identify and review materials which included academic materials, ‘grey’ literature, non-academic materials and policy documents such as Government/local government materials, Educational Development Plans, Behaviour Support Plans, etc. Through the research we were able to identify good practice amongst LEAs in relation to transition across phases.
Keywords: Key Stage 2/3 transition, schools, transition and transfer
