Primary Transition Workshop

For most children, moving up to secondary school represents leaving childhood behind and becoming a teenager. The experience of transition is something young people look forward to. However, government research has found that negative transitions from primary to secondary occur repeatedly across the majority of secondary schools. Furthermore, the effects of a negative transition have proven to stay with a young person into their mid teens.

This workshop is for schools offering support to young people who are about to go through the delicate transitional phase, enabling them to engage with and partake in transitional activities.

Aimed to help children prepare for the move, this session explores the many uncertainties young people have about moving to ‘big school’, we want to encourage a more positive attitude towards transition; making it something that young people look forward to.

This is a more interactive approach to addressing transition issues and will allow the participants to understand more about their own transition to secondary. This workshop will:

  • To encourage positivity towards secondary school
