In September 2022, MUMO’s two children’s support workers (CSWs) supported four young people as they transitioned from primary to secondary school. Principals in MUMO’s two core schools – Springfield Primary School and St. Clare’s Primary School – identified two children in each school who could benefit from additional support in the first week of year eight in a new school. The CSW from St. Clare’s Primary School supported two year eight children in All Saints College and the CSW from Springfield Primary School supported two children in Belfast Boy’s Model School.
Both childrens and secondary schools benefited from this targeted, focussed intervention. It is an important strategic development for MUMO, in particular in relation to transition work.
