P7 Transition

Video Presentation


Stranraer Academy has twelve associated primary schools: five located within the town of Stranraer and seven in outlying communities. We make every effort to ensure that the move from primary to secondary school is as smooth and as anxiety-free as we can possibly make it.

The Primary/Secondary Liaison Group comprising primary and secondary school teachers meets regularly during the course of the school year with the aim of ensuring continuity of educational practice and experience. Before pupils move to the Academy in August, the Primary 7 teachers complete a transfer form on every individual pupil, and this information is used to ensure continuity of progress and recognition of needs.

Stranraer Academy - P7 Transition

HT/ DHT will visit each primary school between February and the Easter holidays to undertake assemblies with P7 Pupils and to meet with relevant staff. This will allow an opportunity to discuss some of the daily processes e.g. daily timetable, break and lunchtime, afterschool activities with pupils and offer a chance for pupils to ask questions, as well to also discuss what pupils are most looking forward to.

Meeting between relevant Stranraer Academy staff and Primary colleagues to collate information about which pupils from each school go together so that they have at least one friend in their class and also ensure that pupils who don’t work well together are kept apart.

Each P7 pupil will be assigned to an S1 Registration and Practical Set.

Ensure P7 pupils, who have siblings already at the school, are in the same PTPS remit where possible.
