Supporting Transition from Year 6 to Year 7 during the COVID-19 Pandemic

Colleagues from primary and secondary phases have been working together with SAfE, under the auspices of the Recovery Planning group, to develop a pack of information and guidance in support of Yr 6 to Yr 7 transition.

Why has this document been written? 
A positive transition experience at any phase can set a child up to thrive and succeed at the next stage of their education.  The primary purpose of this document is to share the thinking around how the planning for transition between KS2 and KS3 can be adapted given the restrictions of COVID-19. Whilst the experience of transition will be different in 2020, it can still achieve the aim of giving every child the very best possible start to their secondary school life.
