Supporting children, parents and carers through the move to a new school

The move to any new school means lots of changes for both parents/carers and children.

Most cope with these changes and get used to them by the end of the first couple of weeks. However, for some the move can be a worry.

Sometimes you don’t know what the new school will be like but knowing what to expect can help you. These resources aim to offer parents/carers some advice on how to support their child through the move to a new school and help ease any worries.  Have a look at these short videos on supporting children and supporting parents/carers.
