  • Transition and Transfer | NBSS
    transition and transfer programmes as this move from primary to post primary is a crucial stage in a young person s educational career A large body of research exists that points to how transitions and transfers makes a difference to students progress For example Rudduck et al 1999 point out that the social upheavals of the move to post primary are so preoccupying that it is difficult for students unless the school intervenes in a positive way to focus on the seriousness of learning If students are not helped during the early period of their new school to sustain their excitement about learning and develop individual routines for managing learning then they may have difficulties with progress later The decline in progress and in commitment to and engagement with learning and school can occur not just at the point of transfer from one school to another but also at points of transition within a school from one year to another In Ireland Moving Up The Experiences of First Year Students in Post Primary Education Smith et al 2004 examined the experiences of over 900 students in their first year at post primary school and highlighted how schools can ease the transition to post primary education For example by Developing links with feeder primary schools so that students become familiar with their new school Having an induction day specific personnel such as class tutors and student mentors who act as a buddy for younger students to help students to settle into the new school and progress academically Having effective anti bullying policies and structures to involve teachers and students in decision making within the school in order to bring about a positive school climate the research showed that many first year students reported being bullied by other students Developing greater links between the primary and post primary sectors through common elements of teacher training transfer of information on the curriculum covered co operation in curriculum development and the transfer of good practice relating to teaching methods Providing taster programmes to incoming 1st years Providing a range of subjects with a more practical emphasis to promote student interest in school Monitoring progress and targeting support in the early phase of first year Over one tenth of the students surveyed in the report received learning support in first year However a third of those who did not receive such help would have liked extra support with their lessons The move to post primary occurs at a particular stage of development Over the last decade much research has focused on the particular needs of early adolescents and on effective teaching and learning in these years of schooling Early adolescence 11yrs 15yrs is seen as a particular phase of development a time when there are changes in cognition changes in friend and peer relationships changes in family relationships as well as physical changes To accommodate the developmental needs of young adolescents as well as to facilitate continuity of learning from primary to second level there
