Transition resources for school staff

Find Your Feet: Staff webinar

Transitioning from primary to secondary school is a particularly significant change for children. Learning about change and how to cope with it will help them with this particular transition and prepare them for many other changes and challenges they will face in life.

To support school staff, we've created a webinar that focuses on how you can help your pupils through the change from primary to secondary school.

Transition activities for pupils

Our pupils' resources will help young people learn how to cope with the changes associated with moving from primary to secondary school.

Find Your Feet: Transitioning to Secondary School

We created a film that reassures children that they’re not alone when it comes to their worries about secondary school, that there are ways to cope with change and there are people to talk to when things get difficult.

Transition tips for parents

If your child is transitioning from year 6 to year 7 or going through a significant change in their life, we created ten ways for parents to help their children cope with change. Going through change can be scary or challenging, but sometimes it's just the small things, like showing interest in your child's hobbies, that can make a difference.
