At Lesmahagow High School we understand the importance of primary transition programmes in preparing young people for life at secondary school. This year, although in a slightly different format, we will continue to support this process and to do all that we can to make sure primary 7 pupils feel as confident as possible about the move into S1.
Each Monday we will release through the LHS school website a phase of our “Shining a spotlight on…”, please watch this space as we will also be launching other innovative approaches to engaging and supporting P7 pupils along the way.
We hope that you are all well and managing to make the most of this beautiful sunshine!
