Once your child has been offered a place

Once your child has been offered a place in our Reception we will contact you in the Summer Term prior to them starting in the Autumn Term of the next academic year to invite you to a parents evening where you will meet the key members of staff and have the chance to have your questions answered.

Either at the Parents Evening or before, you will receive an information pack which will help you and your child prepare for starting school. Included will be an admissions form, it is important that we receive the completed form along with a copy of your child's birth certificate prior to  them starting school.

During the Summer Term we will also invite you and your child  to some fun stay and play sessions where they will meet our Reception Teachers and Teaching Assistants, but more importantly they will get to experience the school environment in a fun and relaxed manner which we find aids the transition into school process. We will also arrange for home visits so that our teachers can meet with your child in an environment that has more familiarity to them and provides  a good introduction for both your child and teacher.
