Midlothian Council P7 to S1 Transition Statement

Tuesday 5th May 2020

Our secondary and primary schools have been working on P7/S1 transition throughout the 2019/2020 session.  However, with the ongoing Covid-19 situation all schools are working to adapt plans to best meet the needs of our young people and families.

The central principle that our schools are working from is that all transition activities must comply with public health advice to ensure all young people, staff and parents/carers are safe.

Midlothian Council recognises that schools are different however, the following outcomes for P7 Pupils and Parents serve as a consistent ‘Midlothian Guarantee’ for all of our P7/S1 Transition programmes.   All schools are working towards delivering the following outcomes

Transitions for pupils with Complex Needs will follow a similar format to that outlined above. In addition to this pupils accessing any of the Midlothian Complex Needs Provision will have a bespoke individualised program tailored to each pupil’s specific needs. This will include continued direct contact between the Principal Teacher and families throughout the summer term.
