It's Your Move

Remember your first day at secondary school?

What’s your first memory of that day?

The towering Year-11s? The hundreds of people all round the place? The new teachers? The new buildings? Wondering how you’d find out where the toilet was?

Whether you were a confident or a scared 11-year-old, chances are that you were at least a bit apprehensive about starting this new phase of your life.

Research conducted by Scripture Union confirmed that the big change from primary to secondary school can be really stressful, as children come to terms with being the small fish in a much bigger pond.

That's why we developed It’s Your Move, a brilliant book designed to help primary schools as they prepare their top year pupils for their move to secondary school. It's packed with wise advice and true stories of young people who have already taken that big step. 

Now on its sixth edition since its publication in 2001, It’s Your Move has helped over a million children move on with confidence.

We've put together a video showcasing It's Your Move, as below.

You can also download the It's Your Move leaflet, special church notice board poster and the It's Your move resource booklet on the right of this page. We continue to update the resource booklet, so if you've got any assembly material, lesson plans or worksheets that you think might be suitable send your ideas to webmaster@scriptureunion.org.uk
