The experience of changing schools – either from primary to secondary or as a result of relocation – can trigger anxiety and stress for many pupils. This set of cards provides an opportunity to identify, examine and tackle specific areas of concern to ensure that the experience can become as worry-free as possible.
Each card outlines a cause for concern, for example:
- People won’t like me
- The work will be too hard
- I won’t be able to find the classroom
- How do I make new friends?
Pupils will then be able to consider their options and share their ideas, so helping them through this potentially difficult time.
