  • Wellbeing support activities such as developing mindfulness, understanding resilience, why it is important and how to support each other in building this and how to combat anxiety that commonly occurs when moving from primary to secondary education.
  • Subject support such as additional lessons in Science, English, Maths, Geography, History and Languages.
