Transitional Year 6 and 7

Moving from primary school to secondary school can be emotional for students. We have two programmes that can help.

Year 6 pupils

This programme develops the social and emotional skills needed to move into secondary school. We do this by:

  • celebrating their achievements
  • understanding their feelings about change
  • talking about thoughts, feelings and behaviour
  • saying goodbye to primary school and moving on

Year 6 Transition Activity Booklet


Essex Youth Service are pleased to be launching a free fun and interactive Year 6 Transition Activity Booklet.

Transitioning from primary to secondary school is a significant change for young people so the aim of the booklet is for those transitioning from Year 6 – 7 to work through fun and hands on activities to help prepare them for life in Year 7. These activities will support the young person with their journey into secondary school by focusing on topics such as Coping with Change, Getting Organised and Making Good Choices.

Whilst working through the activities they will earn points which can then be used to claim their award certificate at the end.

If you want your child to take part, please email and one of the team will issue you with your starter pack.

Year 7 pupils

This programme supports year 7 pupils who need extra support or have needs not identified in Year 6.
