Free PSHE transition to Secondary school materials for Year 6 pupils

From Public Health England.

Now SATs are over, help your pupils prepare for the leap from Primary to Secondary school, a time when they will experience many changes in their lives, from new friendships to new routines and timetables.

Our new transition to Secondary school lesson plan explores what to expect at Secondary school, how the move might make them feel and different strategies to cope with change.

New BBC Bitesize Starting Secondary School campaign

BBC Bitesize in partnership with YoungMinds have announced their new campaign Starting Secondary School which is designed to help support the critical step of beginning Secondary school.

BBC Bitesize is hosting a range of content that you, your pupils and their parents can use to navigate the transition to Secondary school, including peer-to-peer advice from CBBC Our School stars, practical tips for parents and BBC Teach classroom clips and resources.

“Transition materials are extremely important and relevant, especially now. They carry the school playground around in their pockets, along with all the good and bad that is inherent there.” - PSHE teacher, Secondary School, Yorkshire
