Use of competition to support transition

Research has identified that young people's greatest concerns about the transition from Year 6 to Year 7 centres around changes in friendship groups, getting used to a new environment and adapting to a new workload. 

'The School Games Use of competition to support transition' toolkit has been designed to support transition from primary to secondary school through competition. It incorporates principles, themes and approaches of competition throughout, using evidence from the School Games Competition Transition Pilot Project, funded through National Lottery investment.
