Mossend Primary School

Starting Nursery

Transfer from Nursery to Primary School

We have strong links with all the Nurseries in the local area.  The majority of our Primary 1 pupils attend our own nursery, though some pupils also attend other nurseries in the surrounding area.  The Primary 1 teachers liaise closely with Nursery staff before the children start Primary School. There are workshops provided where the children can experience the types of learning activities they will undertake in Primary 1.  The children are also given the opportunity to visit their new school and spend some time in their new learning environment with their new teacher.  Finally, the Primary 7 children provide pastoral care for the new Primary 1s in the form of playground pals and buddies.  In addition to these arrangements we also attempt to involve the nursery pupils in the every day runnning of the school in the following ways:

Children from our nursery class attend school assemblies when appropriate
Children in our nursery class have PE in the school gym hall
The HT and DHT visits the nursery class regularly to get to know the children
P1 teachers have regular visits to the nursery class in the last school term to build good relationships with the children
Nursery and P1 teachers meet to discuss pupil profiles and transition records
School taster sessions for children and information sessions for parents are hosted by the school
