Transition support

Written by: Pete Henshaw | Published:

In September 2019, 752,528 children will move up to secondary school across the UK.

The Starting Secondary School campaign has been launched offering support to parents, teachers and students to help make the transition as smooth as possible.

Aimed at pupils aged 10 to 12, the initiative has been created by BBC Bitesize and the mental health charity YoungMinds.

It includes videos, interactive games and tips and advice and supports pupils during their last term in primary school and through their critical first weeks at secondary school.

The resource includes peer-to-peer advice, practical tips for parents, and classroom clips and resources for teachers.
