Starting school is an anxious time for both children and parents. We will make it as enjoyable and easy as possible. In the term before the children start, the parents and carers will be invited to a meeting where we will inform them of all they need to know about the school. There is also an opportunity to ask questions.
Prior to entry to the Reception class, the children will be invited to spend time in the school, in order for them to begin to familiarise themselves with the staff, the environment and meet new friends.
Teachers will visit the children and parents in their home. They will also liaise with all pre-school settings to ensure the transition to reception class is an effective, really positive experience for children and their families.
