Making the transition from primary school to secondary school is a significant event for children. Not only is this a time of great change in their lives, but this is also an event that can trigger a range of emotions that young people may not always know how to process. With more young people today experiencing poor mental health, it is imperative that the emotional wellbeing of young people is the starting point for a successful transition programme.  

Before the start of the next academic year, it is important to consider how to create a supportive and connected classroom for students joining the school and for the year ahead. This session will also consider ways in which to give students the opportunity to process and reflect on their feelings and experiences as they move to secondary school. 

Join us for a one-hour CPD session that connects you to other educators and provides activities and resources for creating an environment in which students’ social and emotional needs are supported. 

This event is aimed at teachers in the UK.
