Preparing your Child for Secondary School
Sat 12 August 2017, 10:30 – 12:30 BST
Is your child entering year 5 or year 6 this September? Will you be choosing secondary schools in autumn 2017 or 2018 and are feeling a little nervous? Anchor Family Support will be hosting a workshop to help address all your concerns and give you the tools you need to prepare your son or daughter for this important milestone.
The transition to secondary school is a big step for children and sometimes an even bigger step for parents as you become less hands-on once children leave primary. There are often information evenings about the application process so you know the ins and outs but what about the other stuff? There are aspects of the primary to secondary transition that are often forgotten about.
In this 2 hour workshop:
Prepare your child -
Socially and Emotionally - Being brave, Mobile phone safety, cyberbullying, Sex Education
To travel to and from school - Independent travel to school training
To adjust to secondary school life - Homework increase, Extra Curricular activities
Advice on buying uniform and kits - Setting a budget
What do I need to tell my child?
