Starting School in the Early Years

We want your child’s first experience of school to be positive and happy. Before the end of the Summer term, your child will be invited to an induction morning at the school. This is a chance for your child to spend time in their new classroom and meet their new teacher and the adults that will be working with them. A home visit will also be arranged to help us get to know your child and to chat with you around any concerns you may have. These visits occur during the first two weeks in September at a time convenient for you.
