    2019 Transition - Moving to Levenmouth

     

    This is a brand new page to support transitions from our Cluster Primary Schools into Levenmouth Academy - a smooth start means that the important business of Learning and Teaching can continue.   Welcome to our page.

    We have a strong transition programme, but as an ambitious and improving school, we are keen to build on this.  Arrangements are already well underway for enhanced transition, and we have already spent a great deal of time working hard to ensure your young people get the best possible transition experience.

    Follow us on twitter @LevenmouthAc

    Along with the majority of schools, we use our Official Twitter Feed (www.twitter.com/LevenmouthAc) to share information.  Being a very large organisation, sending letters home can cost in excess of £1,500 for just one page, so we use contemporary, digital methods.  We would ask all parents/carers/guardians/families and young people to follow us on twitter from P5 onwards, so you can see what is happening at our school.

    The app is FREE to download.  You only need to download it once.  Once downloaded and signed in (which you also need to only do once), just search @LevenmouthAc and press FOLLOW.  It is as simple as this.  Our twitter feed shares pupil successes, learning experiences and aims to connect with our community.  We regularly have in excess of 20,000 engagements every day.  Over 20 members of staff regularly contribute and is a great way to see, in real time, what is happening at Levenmouth Academy.

    March 2019 Transition Tour Introducing our pupils and Levenmouth Academy

    Depute Headteacher (Transition) and young people from the Junior Phase Leadership Team (JPLT) and Columba 1400 Leadership Team (CLT) visited all ten associated Primary Schools in our Cluster to deliver meet P7, P6/7 or P5/6/7 (depending on school).  This visit is to introduce the Primary pupils to our Junior Phase young people - answering questions honestly and in a comfortable, relaxed environment and providing a transparent and open dialogue about life at Levenmouth Academy.

    April 2019 1:1 visits for young people and families, and Partners' Marketplace

    Following on from the Transition Tour, all Primary Classes will be given the opportunity to come to Levenmouth Academy for informal evenings to meet with the DHT (Transition), and receive informal tours of our state-of-the-art learning campus.  Young people and their families can request a tour, either 1:1 or as a group, by visiting our homepage and clicking the CONTACT US button.  

    April 22nd 2019 - Partners' Marketplace event took place.  This was a first for Levenmouth Academy, with over 40 partners, organisations, support groups and local clubs taking part - as well as a strong number from within our school.  All Primary School parents and families were invited to this event, and a huge thank you to our associate primary schools for sharing the letter, GroupCall and tweets regarding this event.

    May 2019 Transition Open Evenings (Additional) by Primary School

    This year, we would like to host a variety of Transition Open Evenings (Additional) by Primary School.  These are to supplement the formal Transition Information Evening which will take place in June 2019.  

    The Transition Open Evenings will give parents/guardians/carers/families and young people the chance to meet with the DHT (Transition) and Headteacher within Levenmouth Academy and give families the chance to ask questions.  This will be followed by an (approximately) 40 minute tour of Levenmouth Academy.  If you are unable to attend on your allocated night, please feel free to join us any other evening.  At the end of the tour, a HGIOS4 evaluation will be provided.
