"We do not learn from experiences; we learn from reflecting on our experiences." —— John Dewey, 1933

Yesterday, I met with my Headteacher colleagues from all of our associated primary schools. They are: James Gillespie's Primary, Tollcross Primary, Sciennes Primary, East Preston Street Primary and Royal Mile Primary. This morning together gave us the opportunity to review our progress over the past session and to plan our collaborative working for next session. A continuing challenge for all of us is to ensure that the transitions at the various stages are seamless and smooth. At the High School, we will soon be welcoming all of our P7s for a 3 day visit on 19,20 and 21 June as preparation for them joining us as our new S1 in August. Over the past few months staff from both primary and secondary have been meeting to ensure that attainment levels and key information for all pupils is shared.
In addition, we also intend to support and encourage staff from primary and secondary to shadow each other.
