Starting High School
Starting Secondary School is a new BBC Bitesize campaign aimed at 10-12 year olds, their parents and teachers. With only a few weeks left of their final term at primary school and induction days about to start, this campaign shines a light on the great potential of starting afresh in secondary school. It also offers practical advice and emotional support to help take the stress out of taking the next big step.
Using the highly successful format of peer to peer advice, Starting Secondary School partners with CBBC documentary series Our School to get first-hand experience from children who have made the move and, not only survived but thrived.
There are also tips for parents on how to best support their children emotionally and practically, as well as expert advice on topics such as bullying and online safety.
On BBC Teach there are bespoke classroom clips and resources, in partnership with YoungMinds, that can be used as part of a discussion around transition as well as case studies of schools from across the UK that have interesting transition projects.
