Transition Arrangements

Each secondary school admits pupils from a number of associated primaries. St. Paul’s Primary School works closely with its associated High Schools and the children living in the catchment area of the schools. Both high schools have excellent transition arrangements with a programme starting early in the P7 year. Children have opportunities to visit the High School and become familiar with a range of staff. High School staff also take the opportunity to visit Cluster primaries during the session to make themselves known to pupils. Additional support is available to pupils who require this during the transition period and arrangements are made for referral to ensure transition is as smooth as possible.
