Power Up! Primary Programme is a Transition based Classroom Resource designed to empower Year 6 students as they move up to high school.
The colourful computerised ebook is easy to run, and can be used both to teach from and then for individual pupil use. Multimedia aspects include sound and video.
Pupils type their answers into interactive boxes and save on the PC.
Power Up! uses a coaching approach with positively worded questions.
Pretty impressed with what it made them think about.
Everything you need to get set up and started to run Power Up! is in the Quick Teachers Guide, including: technical preparations, to thoughts about how to teach or use the materials in class.
You have Year 6 teaching rights for theprogramme with a renewable annual licence.
The content is updated annually to keep the content fresh and remain up to date with technical developments
In what may be the most comprehensive linked resource of its kind, Power Up! aims to draw the school, pupil and parent together to work towards empowering young people at this key time of Transition.
Additional Resources to Help

The Parent Booklet provides the opportunity to engage parents withwhat is being taught at school from the Power Up! Programme. It provides parents with coaching questions and declarations to try with their child and tips for getting valuable conversations started before high school begins.
The Parents’ Evening Video introduces parents to the concepts of Power Up! and goes through some of the supportive ways parents can engage with their child about moving to high school. This works well with the booklet.

Power Up! is very valuable: it is definitely something we have been missing. It is an all-
round package, good value for money.

It’s nice to know other children are in the same boat as you… It was good to understand how high school works and that I shouldn’t be worried. Student
