‘The transition from primary to secondary education is one of the most stressful events in a young person’s life ( Zeedyk et al., 2003) and can have a negative impact on psychological well being and academic achievement ‘ cited by D Evans in ‘A Review of the academic and psychological impact of the transition to secondary education – University of Sussex.
Dfe data from 2011 shows that progress drops between KS2 and KS3 in reading , writing and maths.
The effects of transition are amplified by risk factors such as poverty and ethnicity .
This 2.5 hour online training session (including comfort break) looks at the implications of research on the transition from primary to secondary school, explores the ways in which transition can be improved ( administration, social and personal development, curriculum, pedagogy and the management of learning) and how both primary and secondary schools can successfully engage parents and carers in an ongoing and positive transition process.
