Primary pack including information to engage Year 6 parents including the parents coaching booklet and an introductory video for the Parent's transition evening. See LOOK-INSIDE Preview
Power Up! Secondary Programme continues the themes of empowerment and transition on the journey into High School. It is designed for use with new Year 7's in their first half term at high school, providing curriculum based activities and supporting teaching resources.
Both programmes are standalone, but if feeder primary schools/link high schools wish to offer both parts, it will compliment and enhance the empowerment learning for new Year 7's
This high value, low cost resource, researched and created by authors and educators, Richard and Catherine Burwell is designed to raise self esteem, generate self awareness and self confidence, and help with decision making, ownership, positive behaviours, and issues of settling in to high school.
