Person-centred planning for a person-centred future

Royal School Manchester recognises the importance of creating bespoke support packages which ensures all our children and young people experience positive daily transitions, and larger life changing transitions.  Our vision is to ensure each young person’s strengths, aspirations and what is important to them is celebrated and used to inform their planning and preparation for adulthood.​

Definitions of key terms:

Micro-transitions:  Small scale transitions for example between activities and locations; this will also include slightly larger changes such as moving from one school year to another.

Macro-transitions:  Large scale transitions or changes for example, from one educational/care setting to another, or the transition into adulthood

Person Centred Planning:  Person-centred planning (PCP) is a set of approaches designed to assist someone to plan their life and supports. Contrasts with ‘system focused’. It puts the focus on the person and their hopes, dreams and aspirations at the centre of the planning.

Preparing for Adulthood

Preparation is fundamental in understanding the needs and views of the young people at Royal School Manchester to support the development of their person-centred plan.  In Year 9, an Individual Education and Transition Plan will be written and reviewed each year throughout Key Stage 4 and Post-16.  The plan will cover aspirations and desired outcomes relating to education, employment, independence, Health, Friendships and community.
