What s this course about?
We know that change is a normal part of life and can provide opportunities for children and young people to develop their resilience. 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 and young people are able to talk about their concerns and are supported to cope with any readjustments. It’s important to prepare parents as well as pupils who are more likely to struggle with moving to a new school or phase of education. This is even more important for children and young people with: additional learning needs, mental health problems, behavioural problems, have changed schools often and those showing signs of anxiety.
