Transition is a tricky time for all children and good transition can mean the difference between floundering and flourishing. As such it is crucial to get it right!
It’s important to prepare pupils who are more likely to struggle with moving to a new school or phase of education. This includes children and young people with:
- Additional learning needs
- Mental health problems
- Behavioural problems
- Limited parental support
- Experience of transient living, such as being in care
- Experience of being bullied

We offer an activity-based programme that develops soft skills and builds self-esteem to help learners make a successful transition from primary to secondary school. It consists of activities designed to develop learners’ skills in 18 key characteristics that will aid their progression.
Helping learners to manage their own learning, recognise their strengths and the characteristics they need to develop, and prepare for their future. It is supported by a range of high-quality teaching and learning resources.
