At Maidstone children join us in Reception and we have the privilege of seeing the children develop into independent learners as they move through Years 1 and 2. we want children to be secure, happy and to learn. This is important if they are to enjoy, achieve and thrive during their learning journey. All staff work hard to enable your child to make progress and as such we also value the interest and support that family members can give us. Your child will be successful with us if we all work together as a team.

Having completed Year 6 at Causton, the majority of children transfer to Felixstowe Academy. Children may also transfer to other local High Schools, Academies or an Independent High School including our own SET Saxmundham school. The majority of the children in our specialist provision will move onto local specialist schools. Where appropriate children may transition to a mainstream high school.

These children are in receipt of an EHCP and are identified by the special needs officers in Suffolk. At Causton we have an 18 place KS2 cognition and learning class. Children will need an EHCP to access the provision and the School they attend is required to apply for a place from the Local Authority.
