It's natural to be anxious about choosing the right school for your child. The step from a small supportive nursery or pre-school to a primary school of several hundred children can be daunting, and even more so for a child with a disability or special educational needs. So it really helps to be well informed. A good transition plan should be agreed with you, your child's SETTING and the school they will be attending.
