School Transitions

The Process of Transition

Transition at the end of one academic year to another can often lead to many questions between both children and parents. Many aspects of school life will be very similar, if not the same; however, how we manage our emotions during any transition is important.

Year 6 Transition to Secondary School

Normally, Bannockburn would be helping our Year 6 pupils in school in order to get themselves ready for their move to secondary school.
