Originally published in 1986. Pupils, teachers and educationalists have contended with continuity difficulties for many years but the problem remains a major one not only in Britain but also throughout the world, including North America. This book examines the problem, assesses the steps being taken to minimise the problem and makes suggestions for improving practice. Continuity is considered both historically and in its 1980s context. The major emphasis is on strategies used at national, regional and school level to minimise difficulties children face when they change school - strategies such as teacher visits and exchanges, liaison committees and the use of transfer documents.
