RISE: Transition to secondary school with confidence

Help your pupils with the Year 6 transition to secondary school.

The Kidscape RISE programme has supported thousands of children over the last four years with the transition from primary to secondary school, with 95% of children feeling happier about the move after the workshop.

RISE Programme for young people

Duration: 2 hrs in the classroom

What are the benefits?

  • Help children to feel more confident about the transition to secondary school
  • Increase children's confidence with practical techniques for making friends
  • Empower children with practical ways to deal with conflict and bullying
  • Support children to develop a positive sense of self

Please note that the workshop focuses on helping children to understand and adjust to social change, rather than the practical arrangements of transition. 


Children will be supported to: 

• Be able to understand and manage their own emotions
• Have a stronger sense of self
• Understand how to form positive relationships with others and handle conflict
• Feel more confident in managing peer pressure
• Understand how to identify a bullying situation and take positive action to stop it
• Have a range of strategies for staying safe
• Know where to seek help and support

“It helped me with my confidence to make new friends at secondary school. You get to ask all the questions you would probably worry about and never ask. It was awesome!”

'The tried and tested content is really good. It is difficult to know from a primary school perspective what will be most helpful, so having this all laid out is wonderful. I will find the print outs and resources especially helpful and it will save so much time for busy school staff'."
"Everything was explained clearly. Having the goals and the outcomes of each activity laid clear was nice, as it gives you the confidence to mould the activities to fit the needs of your children."
