Starting school for the first time

As a school we understand that starting school for the first time can be difficult for some children and we pride ourselves on having a successful and smooth transition into school not only from the local nurseries but for those who have not attended nursery school.

Normally, in the summer term prior to your child attending school we have an induction process including: visits to the school, home visits, a welcome evening and taster sessions. All these would ensure that your child is ready to join us fulltime from September.

Unfortunately this year is different!  

We will do our best to give you as much information about starting school in September and answer all the questions you're sure to have.

We have produced a 'Starting School' brochure that introduces things.
