CONTEXT

The importance of a good start to secondary school education cannot be overstated. Sir Michael WilshawKey Stage 3: The wasted years?

.. too much goes wrong before young people have even set foot in secondary school.Nicky Morgan : One Nation Education

Lets consider the National Context and the spotlight on Transition . Key Messages from DfE and Ofsted

One nation education.. Nicky Morgan (3/11/15)Primary assessmentOf course we know that too much goes wrong before young people have even set foot in secondary school.If children havent mastered the basics in primary school, the rest of their time in school is a game of catch-up. Maths and English are the non-negotiables for a successful life, and children who dont master them at primary school are much - much - less likely to succeed when they move to secondary school. Only 7% of them go on to get 5 goodGCSEs.

Wilshaw27/10/15In the first of a series of monthly commentaries, Sir Michael said: " My inspectors tell me that much of the good, structured work done in primary schools (on understanding and using correct grammar, both when writing and when speaking), is lost when pupils enter the secondary phase.

But he pointed to figures in 2014 which showed around 5,000 disadvantaged pupils, who attained the highest levels at the end of Key Stage Two, had failed to achieve a grade B in English and mathematics at the age of 16."This is little short of a tragedy for the young people concerned and an enormous waste of talent for our country," he said.

Transition - how daunting it must be .To go to a secondary school after years of being in a smaller, nurturing, safe and secure primary school

Becoming one of 30-40 students in a class instead of a much smaller class having as many as fifteen teachers instead of 1; taking on several new subjects; finding your way around a new (sometimes much larger) school; lots of homework and lots of new rules.

The transition from primary to secondary education has been recognised as a crucial stage in a young persons educational journey.Young peoples experiences of the transition process can influence their subsequent academic and social development.Difficulties during the transfer from primary to secondary school can contribute to later educational failure.It is a widely acknowledged that, for some children, the first couple of years in secondary school result in falling levels of achievement.

More significantly perhaps, it is during these transitional phases that confidence and motivation in the learner can be affected, which may impede learning later on. It is important that there is recognition of why these dips are happening, and how they can be avoided or smoothed out , to ensure effective and powerful transitions to maintain powerful learning.

It might be worth considering the following questions: what information is passed on or received at any of these transitional periods? how useful is it, and how helpful is it, in ensuring that every student continues to show progress in their learning? how could it be made more useful as a tool for planning for progression?

Transition why is PE and School Sport Important?

In the YST National PE, School Sport and Physical Activity Survey Report (2015) it found that only around half (48%) of primary schools said that their transition programme included PE, physical activity and sport, 31% said it did not and 21% were unsure.

But the majority of schools who took part in the survey recognised the positive role sport can play in helping change the lives of young people: 95% of schools considered that PE, physical activity and sport makes a positive contribution to life skills (confidence, resilience, resourcefulness, teamwork, communication skills). 91% considered that it makes a positive contribution to achievement, 70% to behaviour and truancy and 69% to attainment.

Ensuring all children have the opportunity to be active every day is essential to improving the future physical and emotional health of our nation. While curriculum time PE is essential for developing childrens fundamental movement skills, children must have access to a wide range of sport and physical activity opportunities outside of formal PE before, during and after school. Currently less than one in five children meet the minimum activity guidelines. To combat this, schools must ensure they engage the least active through specialist provision. To ensure our children are healthier and happier, increased emphasis must be placed on supporting both physical and emotional health at school.

Sport provides a huge range of opportunities for young people to get active and learn new skills. Whether it is through taking part in competitive sport, volunteering at an event or coaching younger players, sport offers a unique context for young people to not only develop their athletic talent, but employability and life-skills too. Despite this, too many young people are being denied the chance to get involved through poorly organised networks and a lack of clear pathways. Fragmentation of the youth sport system means young people have to negotiate a maze of organisations to achieve their goals, while appropriate development opportunities are not always available.
