Year 6 Transition

As part of our transition activities in Year 6 the children will be taking part in an online workshop with Kooth next week. Kooth provides early mental health support to children and young adults across the country. The service is freely accessible to all children all they need to do is visit www.kooth.com. Sessions will be focussed on the worries and concerns children may have regarding the transition from primary to secondary school and the many changes which are associated with this stage in their school-life. Sessions will be completed as a class with year group staff and will give children an insight into some of the strategies they can use to help navigate their transition and some of the support services available to them. Further information can be found in their letter to parents here.
