  2. Hi,

    We are moving to the area and our children will be going into P1 and P3 in August and we are looking for some information on the transition for our son from Nursery to P1 and also have many questions on the new school for our children. I have attempted to email and my wife has left a message on the answer phone. Is there a way we can get in touch with someone to discuss our questions?

    Many Thanks

    Jason Cowing
