Progression - Primary 7 to Year 8
We recognise the need to support students effectively as they make the transition between primary and post primary school.
Transition - Year 8
In the summer term a member of staff visits our feeder primary schools to talk to the primary 7 teachers about each of the children who are transferring to our school.
An induction afternoon takes place in June for all students who are transferring in August. This is an opportunity for students and parents to meet the Pastoral Team who will be working with their daughter when she transfers to St. Louise’s.
An innovative and exciting transition programme is delivered to all of our new, Year 8 students in August. This programme is delivered by our staff in partnership with our Post 16 students, our business partners and local community groups.
Year 8 students are supported by Post 16 Mentors, some of whom will have been involved in the transition programme.
In term one of Year 8, parents are invited to an individual Curriculum Meeting which allows form tutors and parents along with students to draw up a personalised learning plan focusing on key curriculum and pastoral areas.
