Primary/Secondary Transition

Description

Three schools show some of the steps they have taken to make the primary/secondary transition in PE a smooth and positive experience.

A gymnastics specialist based at The Manor School, a secondary school in Mansfield, works in local primary schools. Her aim is to improve continuity between the primaries and the secondary school, benefiting pupils and teachers alike.

At Eastgate Primary School in King's Lynn, a playground leaders? training scheme based at the local specialist sports college is one way in which links are forged between primary and secondary.

Comberton Village College in Cambridgeshire has implemented a package of measures to ease transition.

They include:

  • professional development for primary school teachers;
  • improving communication between the primaries and the college;
  • sports festivals and development camps for primary school children held at the college;
  • and addressing practicalities, like access to minibuses so primary school children can get to the college.

Part of the series: Get Physical (Secondary)
