Transition is generally when pupils move from:
- Nursery to Primary School
- Primary School to Secondary School
- Secondary School to post school destinations
Schools and nurseries provide support to pupils during transition. Staff in school
will help as much as they can with transitions to make sure the child or young person
does not feel anxious or unsure. Family support workers or careers advisors can
Before leaving nursery or when moving from primary to secondary, the information
record for each child will be transferred to the receiving school to ensure a smooth
transition and continuity of educational progress.
Usually each school or nursery has their own arrangements in place for pupils and
parents to visit the new school, see the new surroundings and meet the teachers
and staff. Contact your child's school or nursery for more information.
