Preparing your child for high school

PublishingPageContent

Moving from primary to high school is a time of new experiences for students. By preparing children for this change, parents and caregivers can help to ease the transition to high school. This can assist students to be happy and settled in their new environment and reduce the risk of disengagement from school.

Parents and care givers can:

  • attend information evenings and familiarise themselves with school expectations and policies
  • involve children in the decision making about school
  • talk with their child about the new school and expectations
  • help children to develop greater independence
  • develop school routines.

If your child is having difficulties adjusting to high school, it is important that you speak to your child and the school as soon as possible.

There may not be any obvious or visible signs that your child is not adjusting well. Be conscious of any changes in your child's behaviour, attitude, communication or reactions that are different to what you might expect. If you are concerned about these changes in behaviour, the school can assist to develop some strategies to help with these issues.
