P7 to S1 Transition – Further Information

Many thanks to everyone who has submitted questions to our online transition form. This will remain open until Wednesday June 17th. We have received over 80 questions so far and to work through these will take a little time; many thanks for your patience in us getting a reply to you. Many questions are similar to each other in theme so these will be posted on our Frequently Asked Questions page (coming soon), for all to see.

There are a number of questions specifially referring to class sizes and arrangements for parents/carers to receive details of their child’s S1 class. At this moment we are unable to comment on these specifics but, rest assured, we are working with our primary colleagues, in line with Highland Council guidance, to have this resolved as soon as possible.

Live Question & Answer Sessions For Pupils

We are also running live, online, question and answer sessions with members of our Guidance and Additional Support Needs staff next week. The timetable for this is shown below. For reasons of confidentiality the access codes to these meetings cannot be published here but have been passed to our feeder primary schools. If you do not have these details please ask your primary school for them in the first instance.
