Change is a normal part of life and can provide opportunities for children to develop their resilience. Whether a child is starting primary school, changing schools, or moving from key stage 1 to key stage 2, or primary to secondary school, this transition period needs to be carefully managed. If a child struggles with a transition it can have a negative impact on their wellbeing and academic achievement. During any transition period, it’s important that children are able to talk about their concerns and are supported to cope with any readjustments.
In school transition
Transition into another class is always a carefully planned event at Chapelford Village Primary School with dedicated planned time given for the children to spend with their new teacher and class. This year will be no different in terms of the thought, time and support we give to the children and this process. Once we are clearer in terms of time frames for return, this will feed in to how we plan this for the children and staff and consideration around class arrangements. As always, we will keep you informed.
