Making a Smooth Transition

Making a Smooth Transition to Secondary School

A workshop for parents of children starting secondary school in September 2020


It is well recognised in education that the first year of Secondary School is of vital importance for any young person’s future performance.

The friends they make, their attitude to school and school work and their behaviour and attendance all impact on their learning, future happiness and success. Helping a child make as smooth and stress-free transition as possible must be the aim of every good school and every parent.

The end of primary school tends to be a busy and emotional time for some but once the summer break starts thoughts turn to their new school which can make some children become a little worried. In order to support your child during this period we will look at some top tips for helping your child prepare for transition by identifying their concerns, working with them on key skills and providing opportunities to developing independence and resilience.
