Starting School

Starting school is an exciting time for young children and their parents. It can be a daunting time, too.


We believe that with a little preparation and encouragement, most children will settle in easily and happily at school.

We have prepared some helpful tips for parents and carers to support their child's transition into school:

There is also a special booklet for our new children and as well as some key information for Parents and Carers:

September 2021 admissions - Early Years children ONLY


Home Visits


Whilst we would have liked to have visited our new children and their families at home before they begin school, we are not able to plan our usual home visits this year. However, we will be offering school visit appointments instead. These visits will take place on Thursday 2nd, Friday 3rd and Monday 6th September and will consist of a 20-minute appointment in school for parents and their child to meet on a 1:1 basis with their new class teacher.


Starting school

Our Early Years children's first day at school will be Tuesday 7th September.  


We want to make sure that your child’s start to school life is a happy and positive one and therefore there will be a gradual increase in school hours during the first few weeks (please see table below) to help them settle in and become familiar with daily routines.
