Transition Session 22/ 23

Welcome to Currie Primary School

Transition from Nursery to Primary 1

You have enrolled your child into Currie Primary School and we are looking forward to your child starting school with us and working in partnership with you. To ensure a smooth transition to school we have several well-established practices some of which I will outline below.

Induction Meeting for Parents

This meeting will take place on Monday 30 May 2022 from 5.00pm-6.00pm in the main school hall. During this meeting we will issue you with information that you will require about the early days of Primary 1. We will also provide an opportunity for you to answer any questions that you may have. You will receive a pack at this meeting and find out which class your child will be in and who the teacher will be. The meeting is not compulsory but it is a good opportunity for parents/carers to meet each other, school staff and to have these all important questions answered.

Transition Dates        

During the dates/times outline below pupils are invited to come to the school for visits to meet the teacher and spend time in the classroom with peers. Please bring your child to the Primary 1 annexe building for 9.15am. If your child already attends our Nursery on these dates our Nursery staff will take them up from the Nursery. The children will spend an hour with their class teacher and classmates. Please come to collect your child sharp at 10.15am so that staff can return to their normal classes.

The dates/times are as follows:

  • Wednesday 8 June from 9.15am-10.15am
  • Wednesday 15 June from 9.15am-10.15am
  • Wednesday 22 June from 9.15am-10.15am
