Sleuth can have a significant impact on issues relating to pupil transition. Most obviously pupils transferring from primary to secondary school but also where students may be involved in a managed moved or where alternative provision is being sought at a PRU for example.
Where behaviour information is conscientiously gathered by the feeder school, by SENCOs for SEN pupils for example, it is usually a laborious task to process it and it can end up in a filing cabinet without ever reaching those staff who could benefit from seeing it.
Sleuth ensures this information is collected consistently and is available to those who require it to prepare for transition. It is notable that nationally the exclusion figures rise dramatically from Yr6 to Yr 7. Using behaviour data to identify and target support for vulnerable students can enable secondary schools to consider focussed and targeted interventions such as nuture groups and extended tranisiton periods to acclimatise.
In the same way access to the behaviour data in Sleuth can be be provided to external agencies to monitor and support students, a primary school can create a login for the Primary Secondary Liaison at the secondary school(s) that their pupils are moving to. MyReports can be set-up to show the profiles of all transition students identifying any that may be vulnerable or at-risk.
