The primary2secondary support programme helps Year 6 children(and their parents/carers) manage the transition to secondary school. From the beginning of Year 6, it provides 14 months of help and support on areas such as travel, homework and more.
And now YOUR secondary school can benefit from the programme.
Contact your feeder primary schools and let them know about the primary2secondary programme.
Make sure the primary schools in your group implement the programme
The primary2secondary website provides FREE resources you can use on your website
Many schools provide little or no information about the move to secondary. We give you resources you can use on your website!
Secondary school is VERY different from primary. And each child is different. So, choosing the best school for THEIR child is a priority for parents. It's not just the Ofsted report. Or the league table results. It's whether the school is a good fit for THAT child. And now, more than ever, parents need help with that process.
WHAT do they need to know? WHERE can they get the information? WHAT does it mean? WHO should I listen to? And, WHAT should I do?
Parents are overwhelmed and anxious and often turn to their child's teacher, or school, for advice. You'd like to help, but...
Can you spend hours checking websites? When you're buried in marking, parent evenings, staff meetings, lesson planning...

It's PARTICULARLY suitable for parents and children who may struggle with the process. This includes:
