Transition

Primary 7 Transition can be a time of great excitement but also one of nervousness or uncertainty.  At Penicuik High School we aim to make the Transition process as smooth as possible for all the young people who will be joining us. To achieve this we work closely with our primary colleagues both in our cluster primary schools (Cornbank Primary, Cuiken Primary, Strathesk Primary and Sacred Heart Primary) but also with colleagues across the region and beyond. Transition working begins in early September and continues through to when the students finally join us in August.

To support students through P7 Transition one member of Guidance staff and out PT SFL act as link staff for each of our Cluster Primary Schools. Identified staff will attend Primary planning meetings as appropriate and will liaise with the primary schools on pupil transition.  The allocated staff are:

Cornbank Primary School:
Mrs Tracey Edge-Loake, PT SFL
Mrs Morven Murphy, PT Guidance

Cuiken Primary School:
Mrs Tracey Edge-Loake, PT SFL
Mr David Saffhill, PT Guidance

Sacred Heart Primary School:
