Starting at a new school is an enormous move for your child, but you can help your child change schools successfully. Children get used to familiar routines and it will take them some time to get used to things being different.
Children can change school for a variety of reasons:
- Moving home
- Transition to college
- Friendship issues or bullying at their previous school
- Specific educational needs
- Unhappiness with their previous school
- Challenges around behaviour
You can help your child positively change schools, even if they’ve had negative experiences in the past.
