Easing the anxiety

5th December 2003 at 00:00
When secondary transfer looms for 10 and 11-year-olds, parents and carers want to offer support and advice without needless fretting or embarrassing interference. Moving Up is a cheerful booklet full of sensible questions and lively cartoons dealing with the essential matters. Travel to school might involve missing the bus or getting lost. The new building might seem like a labyrinth with lots of doors and no toilets. Unfamiliar subjects, unknown teachers and intimidating bullies all raise anxieties, which the book does its best to disperse through calm discussion and measured advice.

Moving Up costs pound;2 (reductions for bulk orders) from TSA, 23 New Road, Brighton BN1 1WZ.
