Year 6 Transition Information:

** BBC Bitesize has lots of great videos and information, under 'Starting Secondary school'....worth a look!

Family Transition Tips:

  1. Look at the Secondary School webpage and familiarise yourself with uniform, policies and practices.
  2. If you have any specific questions, you can always contact the school via their 'Contact Us' form.
  3. Try to find ways to become more independent - put away your own clothes, make your own sandwiches and help out with any jobs around the house.
  4. Find out who else is going to the same school as you and start to form some friendships with them - possibly via the class blog.
  5. Plan your journey to school. Think about how you will get there. Can you practise it?
  6. Start thinking about how your daily routine might look. What time will you get up? What will you have to remember each day for school? How will you complete your homework?
  7. How will you eat at Secondary School? Where will you eat your packed lunch? How will you make sure you have enough money to buy your lunch each day? What will you choose to buy?
  8. Think about what problems you might face and how you will you solve them. Who can you ask for help?
  9. Start to think about how you feel about leaving Primary School.
  10. Remember that while you might feel negative about the change it is still a positive experience so pick out the positive things about the new challenge.
