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/Pre-School Visits

Government guidance will determine whether it will allow school staff to make home visits during the Summer term 2022.  Visits can also be arranged at the child's nursery or pre school setting.
