The arrangements for new P1 entrants, commencing in August are as follows:- Enrolment is held week beginning Monday 27th January 2020 for children planning to start school in August of that year. The dates are advertised in the local press and parents should bring their child’s birth certificate when they come to the school to enrol their child. Parents can also enrol online at https://www.highland.gov.uk/info/878/schools/11/school_enrolment.
In the summer term there are a variety of transition activities organised for new pupils to familiarise themselves with in their new classroom and school surroundings. Examples include: playtime with P1/2/3, a P6 buddy being assigned to them, stay for lunch and three planned visits to the Primary 1 class.
The Primary 1 teacher liaises with the nursery on a regular basis throughout the school year so that their new Primary 1 teacher is a familiar and friendly face when they start school.
Primary 1 pupils will attend full-time from the start of the school session 2020/21. There will be no half days.
Any parent wishing to enrol a child during term time should make an appointment to see the Head Teacher.
During the summer term all P7 children pay a two day visit to Wick High School. They take part in a normal timetable at the High School and meet staff. An evening meeting for parents is also arranged prior to transfer. Primary/Secondary liaison between the local High School and the feeder primaries is very good with primary and secondary teachers meeting throughout the year to ensure that a smooth transition for each child is achieved.
