Nothing brings a lump to your throat quite like your offspring donning their uniform and heading off to primary school for the first time (or, as with my own son recently, the last time). They seem so small, and we feel apprehensive on their behalf. So what can parents and teachers do to ease that transition? Claire Hughes looks at the evidence on p.714.

Elsewhere, there's more for teachers as we embark on a new school year -Marc Smith on resilience, a 'Big Picture' on playgrounds, and our 'New voices' article tackles reward and punishment in the classroom.

A different journey begins for the thousands of new psychology undergraduates who will be receiving this issue free. We hope the resources at http://thepsychologist.bps.org.uk and www.bps.org.uk/digest will guide you through your studies, and that you will consider joining the British Psychological Society (www.bps.org.uk/join). Follow us on Twitter @psychmag for all the latest, and find us on Facebook (speaking of which, hope you 'Like' p.724).
