For many the move into secondary school is a smooth and effortless process. But for some pupils the transition from primary school into secondary school can be a stressful and isolating experience. This practical resource includes strategies for encouraging team work, participation, raising self esteem within the classroom and, for the most vulnerable, a programme to support pupils at an individual or group level. Pupils will develop skills that will help them both in school and when they move to the workplace or further education.
Beyond Transition will help to:
• Develop effective school policies and practices to ensure smooth transition for all pupils
• Provide professional development for all staff involved in pupil transition
• Make the transition into secondary school a less scary and intimidating process for pupils
• Develop the self esteem and confidence levels of more vulnerable children.
