Smoothing the transition. 17 ideas for parents and carers supporting young people moving to secondary school
The transition from primary to secondary school is a big deal for any young person. Year 6 pupils are the oldest and ‘wisest’ in their primary school. They might have been together with classmates since Reception, growing up together, making friends, falling out, and making friends again. Each day, they’ve spent most of their time in a single classroom, with known and familiar routines. Then, on the flip side of a long six week holiday, all that changes.
This blog post contains a set of ideas and thoughts for parents supporting young people who are moving to secondary school.
Lots of ideas which we hope will help parents and carers.
