We want all children to be in school, ready to learn and to be supported effectively during of transition, whenever they occur.
Our ‘Ready For School (RFS)’ and ‘Ready For Secondary School (RFSS)’ workshops support parents to understand the importance of their child being “ready” for the next stage of their education.
For those working in schools with responsibility for transition support, our Effectively Supporting Transition workshop provides a wealth of transition strategies and activities for those responsible for supporting children in schools.
Through our practitioner services and training provision, we aim to:
- Advocate for early intervention
- Encourage the use of a variety of strategies
- Engage parents to increase the capacity of all children to cope with transitions
- Give families the positive experience of managing change
- Develop a family’s belief in their skills to overcome adverse circumstances.

Impact of Ready for School
Before attending the workshops, 85% of parents who took part in our pilot said they had a low or mid-level of knowledge and confidence with regards to being prepared for their children to start at school. After attending the programme, 100% of parents said they had a mid or high level of knowledge or confidence.
We recently spoke to Regina, a mother who had completed her first Ready for Secondary School session that day. See what she had to say about the course:
