Transition from Secondary to Primary

    I am currently in secondary education teaching IT and business. I have been a Head of Faculty and I am currently a Head of Year. I started my working life as a nursery nurse (many years ago) before I got my degree in IT and moved onto secondary teaching. I am really interested in moving from secondary into preschool / KS1. Has anyone done this? How do I start the transition? Can’t seem to find that much information on moving from secondary to primary. Thanks

    There have been plenty of threads on here about just such a move - you can use the search facility to find them.
    The key thing is making yourself attractive to heads. How will you show them that you are a better choice than someone who has been trained for and has experience of EYFS and/or KS1? Do you have any experience of working with your feeder primaries? Maybe look at opportunities to do more of this - either going down there and getting involved or inviting children to come up to the secondary school and take part in activities you have organised.
