Transition is a part of life we all deal with in our own ways. To try to make transition easier for both children and parents, communication is vital. It is important parents can be involved in this process alongside their children and so we aim to make this a positive experience for all involved. Our aims and outcomes for this programme are:
- Preparation for change
- Confidence building
- Compliment their learning, social and intellectual development
- New working experiences and environments
- Working as a team
Running alongside the visits to primary schools by the Head of Year that already take place during year 6, this new transition programme gives parents the opportunity to meet some of the key staff within the Transition Team who will be supporting the children in the change from primary to secondary school.
Getting Ready to start Secondary School
Starting secondary or high school can be both exciting and a little bit scary for you and your child.
As parents and carers, preparing for this change and making sure that your child feels able to take the step from primary school can feel difficult.
However, there are many ways in which we can help our children -and ourselves – feel ready.
