Starting School

When your child starts school for the first time or moves school it can be an anxious time for parents and children. We pride ourselves on our friendly, nurturing ethos which helps children to settle quickly into school life with us.

Children starting in Reception will be offered a comprehensive induction package which will enable them to become familiar with the school building, the classroom environment and the Reception staff prior to starting in September. This will include a stay and play session with parents and a chance to sample our lovely school lunches, story time sessions with your new class and teacher, a home visit from your teacher and two half days in school during July. We will invite you to start school in a small group in September so that you feel confident and comfortable as you join us for the first time.
Children who move from another school will be supported by their class teacher and will have a buddy who will help them to settle into the routines and systems that operate in the school.
