Transition to secondary school can be an anxious time for children and parents. We can support children in a number of ways including:
Transition sessions are delivered to year 6 classes to help them explore their anxieties and concerns about the changes they are about to face, such as increased independence in travelling to school, getting lost, peer pressure, being bullied, and harder work.
Supporting individual children through SNAP group sessions or SNAP-ITS individual sessions which start while children are in Year 6 at primary school and continue support into Year 7 at the new secondary school. These sessions have been delivered in schools around Brighton & Hove
Feeling Good Feeling Safe Transition is a programme for parents and children who may be struggling with making the transition to secondary school. We look at developing emotional literacy, problem solving and calming down techniques which can all be applied to making a successful transition.
Transition Focus Days: We regularly deliver transition focused sessions at the annual ‘Safety in Action’ week and ‘Transition Day’ for the central cluster schools in Brighton & Hove.
How does it Help?
“It helps to keep you safe, now I’m not that scared to start secondary school.”
“I learnt that ZIP-IT is a good app with funny come-backs for sexting.”
“It really helps to beat bullying and school problems.”
