Transition to School

Moving on to Primary 1

Starting school is one of the biggest milestones in childhood, for children and their families.
It’s a time of excitement, when children can look forward to new adventures, challenges and learning. As with any change there can be worries too, wondering what will happen at school and if everything will be ok.
At Arthurlie Family Centre we work closely with our local schools and community to provide transition activities which will support children and families during the whole process of starting school.
Please be assured that we are exploring lots of possibilities for transition activities with our partner schools, to take place in May. Whatever Covid guidance is in place we will be able to provide transition support to you and your child, so that children can start school happily and confidently.
We know that last years’ transitions worked really well for children and families, who had a visit to the school and virtual tours and videos on line. We are able to build on what we have learned throughout the last year, to ensure that children will have the support they need during the transition process.
At this time we would like to answer any questions you may have about your child moving on to school. Could you please complete our short questionnaire below to tell us about any questions or concerns you have. We will then provide answers to these questions on this webpage.
