  • Recognise the differences between normal pubertal development, early puberty and precocious puberty and the impact on the transition to secondary school

  • Briefly outline the presentation of adolescent scoliosis
  • Recognise issues around emotional and social development and how this impacts on learning in secondary school, and the differences in support for vulnerable learners in secondary compared with primary school
