Overview

Making the move from primary to secondary school is one of the major stepping stones in a young person's life. While there is a risk that some might find this move traumatic, there are many ways in which teachers can work to make the transition as smooth - and enjoyable - as possible. This book aims to help new and existing teachers to recognize the effects of transition, and to explore how schools can best ensure fluency at a time of change. The book explores the roles and concerns of the major stakeholders (the pupils and their parents, the Year 6 and Year 7 teachers), and shows that effective transitions must be firmly based on the continuity and progression designed into the National Curriculum, by the efficient and purposeful transfer of information between schools and by comprehensive liaison between the various parties involved. The book also offers specific advice about how to develop a transition audit, designed to help schools identify the strengths and weaknesses in their approach to transition.
