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.
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.

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.’’
