We work very closely with other schools within our learning community.
P3 to P4
Children from the West Loan campus move to Preston Road campus at the end of Primary 3 and we want to ensure that this move is as smooth as possible. Various transition events take place throughout the year, so that the children are familiar with the layout of the building, and are given the opportunity to meet our staff and pupils. The Headteacher and Depute Headteachers meet regularly to discuss the Curriculum and to make sure we identify issues which might affect class groups and individual children.
P7 to S1
Most pupils at Prestonpans Primary will continue their education at Preston Lodge High School. Again, we have procedures in place to make sure there is a smooth move from Primary 7 to S1. This takes the form of visits by Primary 7 classes to Preston Lodge, visits by Preston Lodge Guidance staff to the Primary, and discussions between those staff and our Primary 7 teachers. Children spend two days in the June of Primary 7 at Preston Lodge, following their first year timetable, which gives them an idea of what to expect.
