Joint Message from Bellshill Academy and Cardinal Newman High School






P7 Transition

Dear parent,

I hope you and your loved ones are keeping well and managing to stay safe.

Both our schools will be in communication as appropriate regarding P7 –S1 transition. Prior to this, we have had some enquires about school uniform and we have taken the decision that children in S1 will not be required to order a blazer prior to starting the new session. When we return to school we will issue full details on how to order a blazer and arrange fittings as suitable.

If you have any questions or concerns please contact a member of our team at our Cluster Hub John Paul II Ps on: 01698 522723

Kind regards,

Mrs J McGraw                               Mr K Ross

HT Bellshill Academy                                          HT Cardinal Newman High School


Transition Dates for New Primary 1 Pupils

We are looking forward to welcoming all our new Primary 1 pupils this week for the last of our planned transition events.  These events are for all pupils beginning in Primary 1.

Induction Afternoon

Our Primary 1 Induction Afternoon will take place on Wednesday 10th June at 1.45pm – 2.45pm. Please bring your child to the infant entrance of the school. On arrival children will be met by a member of school staff and directed to the correct classroom for the afternoon.

During the visit the children will have the opportunity to meet their class teacher and experience some of the activities, which will take place in Primary 1.

Parents/carers will have the opportunity to learn more about the school, which will provide information about your child’s first year.


School Lunch Visit

Pupils are invited to come along for a school lunch on Thursday 11th June at 11am.  Due to capacity in the dinner hall we can only accommodate one adult to accompany each child. Pupils and adults will be able to sample our school lunch menu free of charge and see the variety of foods on offer.

Please telephone the school on the above number to confirm you attendance at both induction events no later than Tuesday 9th June.

We look forward to seeing you then.

Transition Visits from Nursery

Today we had all the boys and girls who will be starting Lawmuir in August come and visit us. They had lots of fun in class, meeting some friends and even took part in a ‘Shape Treasure Hunt’. Parents enjoyed a cup of tea and a biscuit with Lucy Roy our Parent Support Worker.

Parents were also issued with an Early Numeracy Guide to help prepare for school in August.
