P7 Transition Notes

At Queensferry Primary School we are well aware that P7-S1 transition can be a challenging and anxious time for our pupils so we will continue to do everything we can, within current restrictions, to make this important time go as smoothly as possible.

The children have been working on their World of Work profiles which are shared with the high school teaching team and identify their skills and attitudes towards learning.

Next week we will have a virtual meeting between our classes and QCHS Depute Head Ms Gordon at which the children can hear more about the school and ask any questions.

There are weekly Sway newsletters available – the first two are themed around Being Brave and Changes
More to follow!

Please also remember that the high school website has a dedicated P7 Transition section here…> which contains more information and some FAQs.
