Parent Tips for Transition – Supporting the Transition to Secondary School
Transition to secondary school is a major milestone for children. Due to Covid-19, school may be more restricted in what they can offer to support transition, which might add to the anxiety children and parents may already be feeling.
Make time to talk
This is a big change and your child might have lots of different feelings about moving school. They might be excited but also have worries about what secondary school will be like. They may feel a sense of loss and worry about missing their old school, teachers and friends. Speak to your child, give them the opportunity to talk about their feelings and ask questions.
Create a memory book with your child to help them capture all the things they have enjoyed about primary school. Think about how to celebrate the ending. Find out what your child’s primary school are doing to say goodbye the Year 6 students.
Before and during the holidays practise skills such as:
- Travelling to and from school – this will help to know what time they need to set off on a morning;
- Using money;
- Making a packed lunch;
- Packing their school pack.
