P7- High School Transition
A close liaison is kept with Eyemouth High School, which pupils from our school normally attend at the end of Primary 7. The High School is situated at the roundabout as you enter the town from the A1. The Headteacher is Mr R Chapman and the telephone number is (018907) 50363.
At Eyemouth Primary School we have a very successful transition programme for all pupils for which we were awarded along with Eyemouth High School.
Pupils with additional support needs and other pupils that have been highlighted by staff or parents that may require extra support with transition to High School will be discussed at early transition reviews in January as to how best to support them.
All pupils will take part in visits to Eyemouth High School where Primary and Secondary staff support the children in a variety of skill based activities. These are then followed in June by a 2 day visit to the High School where children will follow a timetable for these two days, meeting staff and becoming more familiar with the High School.
Parents will receive a letter from Eyemouth High School via the Primary School inviting them to a parent information session held at the High School.
