Pupils have their rights when transferring

26th December 1997 at 00:00
With reference to the article by Peter Quail (TESS, December 5) in relation to primary-secondary liaison, I should like to record that pupils transferring to their associated secondary have the right to appropriate liaison and pupils transferring to others do not.

Turnbull High takes pupils from anything up to 16 primary schools but liaises on an ongoing basis with our associated primaries only. We do not have ongoing liaison with others whether they are denominational or not. We are after all only staffed to a level to accommodate our associated schools. Perhaps Mr Quail has another agenda which is whether denominational schools should exist at all.
