What is transition ?

Transitions are the moves that children and young people make from stage to stage in their education, for example starting school, moving from one school to another, or leaving school. Some, but not all, children with additional support needs will require extra help to make transitions successfully.

At Halebank C E Primary School we understand the importance of these key stages in a young person's life and therefore try to prepare them as much as we can so that the transitions are smooth and exciting rather than overly intimidating.

Our PHSE curriculum teaches our pupils how to be resilient, contemplate change and how to make healthy relationships. Alongside this are our core Christian values and our social, moral, spiritual and cultural teaching which help all children to understand their place in the world and to develop a strong sense of self.
