More Places for Support

Below are some more places you can go to for information, advice and support

BBC Bitesize

Advice for parents and children can be found on the BBC Bitesize website, including how to keep in touch with new and old friends, getting used to your new school, quizzes and blogs, preparing your child for secondary school.  Although the website is aimed at both parents and children we think it's a great resource for children to use (and has brilliant tips for revision, information on the different learning topics for each key stage and loads more for them to look through).

Family Lives

Family Lives have information and advice from choosing a secondary school to exams and onwards.  It is aimed more at parents and carers.


ParentKind have advice and information on starting both primary and secondary school. They have quizzes and a parents hub along with budgeting advice and more.  Again aimed more at supporting parents and carers
