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 2022 admissions - Early Years children ONLY


Induction Mornings


Children starting school in Early Years in September 2022 will be invited to an Induction Morning session in school in July. There will be an opportunity to meet their new class teacher and for the children and parents to spend time in their new classroom with their new classmates. Invitations will be sent out in early June, as soon as class lists are finalised. 


School Visits


We will be offering school visit appointments on Friday 2nd, Monday 5th and Tuesday 6th September. These 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 Wednesday 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.
