Update from the Headteacher 7 May 2020 – P7 to S1 Transition

Dear Parent/Carer,

A focus for our work during Term 4 is the transition process from P7 into S1.  This is an important stage in the lives of young people and it is important that plans are put in place to support them through this change.  Although we are unable to undertake all of transition processes and procedures as we would normally be able to do, many of the planning meetings are taking place remotely. In addition to this, Midlothian Council have agreed a strategy for ‘virtual transition’ that all schools will work towards.

Midlothian Council P7 to S1 Transition Statement

I know that many of our families will have younger children who will be making the transition from our associated primary schools and we will keep you updated on our plans as they develop.  Information is currently on our website to assist families who are new to the school.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your ongoing support and hope that you enjoy the holiday weekend.

With very best wishes,

Allyson Dobson
