Service Description

The transition into secondary school with your child is an exciting but also daunting time - new uniforms, teachers, and friendships. It's natural to feel a mix of excitement and concern. The experience can feel overwhelming. As a teacher, school leader and parent, I am here to support you in navigating this transition with confidence. I've built a three-session online course specifically tailored for parents like yourself, providing insider knowledge to empower you as a positive and informed partner in your child's secondary school experience. In our first session, we'll delve into the fundamental differences between primary and secondary school. You'll gain insights into the jargon, learn about the different school staff you will meet and set out the typical journey your child will undertake in secondary school. This session is a comprehensive introduction to the secondary school system. Moving into the second session, we'll shift focus to building strong relationships with schools and teachers. Drawing on my experience as a teacher, I'll share effective strategies (and pitfalls to avoid) when engaging with the professionals who play a crucial role in your child's education. We'll explore why some parents excel as partners and discuss how you can too. Our final session is dedicated to addressing potential concerns you may have. We'll navigate scenarios that might be causing apprehension and examine the various routes and methods available to resolve these issues. Much like creating a 'birth plan' during NCT, we'll craft a similar strategy tailored to secondary school challenges. The session will conclude with a general Q&A, providing an opportunity for you to seek clarity on any lingering questions. This course will be recorded and you will be emailed the recordings at the end of each session. All resources will be sent out at the end of the course. You can submit questions before, after or during the session and I will respond to each one personally.
