Transition Visits

Prior to children starting school, they 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, School Council children and representatives from the Governing body and PTA. These visits are extremely useful to both parents and children in getting to know the school.

Home and/or Pre-School Setting Visits

If Government Guidelines allow, the Foundation stage team will arrange a visit to meet parents and child at home in early September prior to starting school.  Visits can also be arranged at the child's nursery or pre school setting.
