Free resources on the transition to secondary school

The transition from primary to secondary school is a significant milestone in every child’s educational journey.

As primary school teachers, preparing pupils for this change can be both challenging and rewarding.

At Just Like Us, we understand the importance of this transition and offer free resources to support you and your pupils.

Free resources for a smooth transition

Our resources are designed by teachers, ensuring they are practical, engaging, and beneficial. They’ll help you ensure your primary school leavers feel prepared and confident for their journey ahead.

Here’s what we offer to help your pupils make a successful move to secondary school:

1. Inspiring video featuring a young person

We have a video featuring a young person sharing their experiences of starting secondary school. This relatable and reassuring content can help ease any anxieties your pupils might have about the transition.

2. Comprehensive lesson plan

Our lesson plan is tailored to guide you through activities and discussions that will prepare your pupils for the next step in their education. It includes structured activities that focus on the skills and knowledge they will need in secondary school.

3. Engaging slides on understanding values

These slides are designed to help pupils reflect on their values, which can play a crucial role in adapting to new environments. Understanding their own values can make the transition smoother and more meaningful.
