COMMUNITY | CitC provide support to youngsters through 'school transition' workshops

21 July 2020

As schools re-opened their doors for pupils during the final 3 weeks of term, County in the Community had the opportunity to pick up where they left off with their Premier League Primary Stars programme.

CitC used the sessions to work with Year 6 pupils at Ringland Primary School to help them prepare for moving up to High School in September.

In partnership with Gwent Community Psychology and current Llanwern High School pupils, they helped to answer some of the pupils’ fears about meeting new people and finding their way around a much larger school! Along with a fantastic letter from Charlie Smith, there were brilliant videos from our Premier League Kicks participants Ellie and Andrew, commenting on their own experiences from moving in to high school and giving some top tips for starting Year 7.

Mrs C. Roberts, PE Coordinator, Ringland Primary School said "The transition programme with County in the Community was hugely beneficial for our Year 6 learners. Not only in supporting them with the next step on their educational journey to secondary school but also as a transition back into school following COVID-19.

The concerns and anxieties of moving to secondary school were identified, addressed and supported by Dan, who was able to provide relevant activities for the pupils and retrieve messages from Llanwern High pupils to reassure our learners about what to expect from the transition to high school. We would like to continue to thank Dan Harvey from County in the Community for all the support he provides to our school, our learners and families.’’
