Call You and Yours: How well was your child prepared for the move from primary to secondary school?
How can schools and parents help children to prepare for the move from primary to secondary school?
Call You & Yours: As the new term gets underway, we are asking - how well were your children prepared for the move from primary to secondary school?
For any child it is a major step. New school, new teachers, new subjects, and the pressure to make new friends. What is it that makes the move to secondary school so difficult for many children? What can parents and schools do to help them settle more quickly?
The head of Ofsted, Sir Michael Wilshaw, has suggested that too many children are being let down in the early stages of secondary school, with the transition from primary school often poorly managed.
We are keen to hear your experience. How is your child doing? How did you go about preparing them? If you are a teacher, how do you work to prepare pupils for the move? What examples have you seen of good and bad practice?
