At Elmvale, we have developed a structured induction programme for all children entering  Primary 1 . From early in the session the Depute Head Teacher visits local nurseries to meet and get to know the children. Close liaison between pre school establishments and Elmvale ensures a positive successful start to the children’s primary school careers. In May, the children from the local nurseries visit with their nursery teachers to see round the school. 

In June, we look forward to seeing the children for an afternoon when they will meet their class teacher and spend time in their classroom. Parents are also invited on this day to join us for a coffee and to hear about the things their child will be doing during their first year at school. Before the end of term, Primary 1 teachers visit the children in the nursery. This is always an enjoyable experience for both teachers and their new pupils.

Informal coffee mornings are held in August to enable parents of Primary 1 children to get to know each other and to meet members of the Parent Helpers.

Additionally, Primary 1 teachers will be available throughout the year to discuss any matters concerning your child.
