An international review of child self-report emotional well-being scales during primary-secondary school transitions

Activity: Talk or presentationInvited talkResearch


Primary-secondary school transition is a critical period for children, where they experience multiple concurrent transitions (Bagnall et al., 2021; Jindal-Snape, 2016). However, to date, we have a limited understanding of how primary-secondary school transition might impact children’s emotional well-being and specifically which aspects of emotional well-being are most affected, and over what time period. Therefore, to address this gap, we have undertaken a systematic literature review of primary-secondary transitions research that used child self-report school transition and emotional well-being scales or questionnaires. In this talk, Dr Charlotte Bagnall, will discuss the key steps involved in conducting the systematic review, its findings and their implications for future research, practice and policy.
