Kildrum Primary School

Starting Secondary

From P.5 the children are involved in a range of Primary/Secondary transition events. These include curricular events such as Science, Maths Challenges, Enterprise related activities and opportunities for secondary teachers to participate in inter-disciplinary learning within Kildrum.

Senior Managers and class teachers visit classes to view children’s work and attainment.

P.7 children attend Cumbernauld Academy for three days in June to experience a secondary programme and timetable, while senior staff meet with Pupil Support and Guidance Staff to ensure that all the relevant information is passed on to the receiving school.

Placing requests to Primary School do not necessarily ensure that your child will have direct entry to the associated secondary. Advice on this must be sought from the Primary School Head Teacher. All placing request details and procedures are available from the Council’s website.

Pupils normally transfer from primary to secondary school between the ages of eleven and a half and twelve and a half years of age, so that they will have the opportunity to complete at least four years of secondary education. Parents will be informed of the arrangements no later than December of the year preceding the date of transfer at the start of the new session.

Our pupils usually transfer to Cumbernauld Academy.
