Through the eyes of a child

Dr Anna Colton, child clinical psychologist, talks about the challenges children face when transitioning from primary to secondary school. Primary school pupils also share the worries and thoughts they have about moving to a new school. And new secondary school pupils talk about what they've learned about the transition.
