Focusing on the move from primary to secondary school, this book aims to help teachers and school managers to recognize and accommodate the often traumatic effects that this transition has on young peoples lives. The text considers pupils, parents and teachers perspectives, and in particular deals with the concepts and practicalities of curriculum continuity and progression in the core subjects, English, maths and science. Section two of the book offers specific advice, illustrated with examples of good practice, on how the needs of children in transition may be met by teachers and schools. The authors provide materials for conducting a transition audit, which should enable schools to identify their strengths and weaknesses in their approach to transition. This is taken a step further with guidance on setting up school networks and liaison processes.
