The Flying Start Gold Award for Transition

If transition is to be successful from early childcare providers to school, preparations should begin early so that there is good communication between the two organisations. The Flying Start Gold Award for Transition focuses on best practice guidelines for childcare settings and schools. The aim is to effectively support a family to prepare their child for the new chapter in their education and assist the child to make the journey into their new environment as seamlessly as possible.

Flying Start is pleased to announce that in 2019 we have issued Gold Awards for Transition to the following early years education settings who have demonstrated high quality transition support:

  • Training Depot Day Nursery
  • Dallow Stars
  • Barnfield Nursery

Schools who have been awarded are:

  • Cheynes Infant School

Certificates were presented at Luton’s Designated Safeguarding Officer termly meetings and successful nurseries and schools have been issued with the Gold Award logo to use on letters and their website. This provides parents with assurance of the school’s commitment to getting transition right for their child
