DHS P7 Transition June 2021

Postcards to P7 pupils  from our S1 pupils


Welcome to our special transition for 2021!

We are looking forward to welcoming you in person when we are able to, in the meantime we want to reassure you that we are continuing with our transition plans – they just look a little bit different.

We are working hard to make sure that our new S1 pupils will have a transition experience that will make them feel welcome and ready to join us next session.

There have been lots of events already this year with quizzes and Q&A sessions taking place through our Transition Google Classroom.  We will have our Virtual Transition Activity Week starting on Monday 14 June with video messages from teachers, live lessons and on line lessons.

In addition, we already have our P7-S1 Transition information on the website where you can find lots of information about Dalkeith High School including school uniform.  This year we are delighted to let you know that we will be issuing all new S1 pupils with a tie on their first day at Dalkeith High School.

We are working closely with primary school staff and other agencies to engage young people who need additional transition supports. These will be revised and adjusted as the plan for our return to school becomes clearer.  Class Lists will be shared at an appropriate time in the future.

We will be launching a dedicated email address for families to contact us should you have any questions – further details of this will follow.

We look forward to you ‘joining’ us in June for our events.

Information will be shared in due course to discuss arrangements for the reopening of the school in accordance with Scottish Government guidelines.
