Advice For parents and carers on supporting transition

While many of you will be parents and carers of children already in the school, we know for of you this will be the first time you have gone through the process of supporting your child in moving from one part of their school career to the next.

The resources attached here are all produced by charities the school often works with, and who provide excellent guidance and advice for secondary aged children and their families.

They are all designed to support parents and carers in preparing their children for secondary transition and also give advice on what to do if your child is particularly anxious about this step.
