Prior to starting Early Years Foundation Stage, children are invited to attend a morning session in their classroom to become familiar with their new environment and to meet their peers. Parents are also invited to a brief information meeting with the Headteacher, Foundation Stage teacher, and representatives from the Governing body and PTA. These visits are extremely useful to both parents and children in getting to know the school.
The Foundation Stage teaching team begin the process of contacting your child’s current Early Years setting to aid transition and organise possible setting visits.
Please see below our Admissions Policies for the current and future academic years.
