Our aim is to make our Primary 1 children’s move from Nursery to school a happy and enjoyable experience. In order to achieve this we try to get to know your child and also help you to prepare your child for school. If your child has attended one of the local nurseries, a member of our staff will have visited the nursery, spoken to the staff and spent some time with your child. Children who attend Thornliebank Nursery Class have a close association with the school and there is a close liaison between the nursery staff and Primary 1 teachers.
The education your child has received, and the progress he/she has made is very important to us. Pre-school education and what your child has learned from you, are the foundations on which primary education is built.
On Thursday mornings and afternoons for 6 weeks in May and June we run our Induction Programme with the help of our nursery staff. On these mornings/afternoons you will be invited to the school with your child. These meetings will give you the opportunity to see round the school, meet your child’s teacher and take part in workshops that offer useful advice.
For your child, the Induction Programme offers many advantages such as getting to know their primary one teacher, their new classmates and becoming familiar with their new surroundings,
At Thornliebank Primary School we want your child to begin Primary 1 feeling secure and happy. Our work with our nursery staff and our Induction Programme helps us to achieve this.
Early in your child’s Primary 1 year you will be invited into school for workshops and also be given opportunities to see your child at work in their class.
