Year 6 to Year 7 Transition

Ensuring a smooth transition for Burford children from Year 6 to Year 7

Having watched them grow from the start of Reception to the end of Year 6, our Burford children may need help and support when it comes to leaving their primary school and beginning their secondary journey.


In the summer term, as part of our PSHE curriculum, we work with the children on a series of transition lessons covering emotional, organisational and academic challenges they may face.


In addition to this, below are a list of useful links that may also support Burford children and their families while making this big step.  These links and resources are available online from a variety of sources who offer such support.


Young Minds

This charity is great for supporting children's mental health and provide lots of resources to help schools, children and parents support children during their transition from Year 6 to Year 7. 


We have uploaded both a parent guide and children's booklet from this website.
