Successful School Transition
The transition from primary to secondary school can be one of the most dramatic and demanding changes in a child’s education. This practical book sheds light on the nature of the problems children often encounter, as well as the issues that schools need to address to make for a smooth transition. The author uses her experience of running transition projects in Newham, London, to provide you with a programme of workshops to show children in Years 6 and 7 how to reflect on their learning preferences, develop new friendships, enhance social skills and be safe in a new environment.
Written for any professional involved in helping children through such a period of change, the book includes detailed teaching sessions, advice on handling difficult issues and ways of fostering relationships between primary and secondary schools.
There is a wealth of photocopiable material, including details on how to audit your school’s transition provision and plan for future developments. Contains 96 A4 pages.
