Important dates for your diary
We know how important the first days of school are for you and your child, so we have lots in place to help make their transition into school a smooth and happy one. Please see below a list of important dates for transition:
A chance for you to find out lots of important information about our school provision and curriculum, meet the staff and take a look at our Early Years environment! We will be running a creche for children and you will be able to collect or order school uniform.
A chance for you and your child to explore their new classroom, meet the EYFS staff and begin meeting and making new friends!
This is a drop-in session, so you can come at any time while the coffee morning is on and stay for as long as you like. This will be a great opportunity for you to meet the family workers and EYFS leader and talk to other parents, as well as some of our current Early Years parents, to discuss what to expect for the upcoming year and ask any questions you may have! Refreshments will be provided free of charge.
A lovely opportunity for you and your child to share a story with your child’s teacher in their new class.
All children are invited to come for a play in their new classroom so that they can become familiar with being without their parents in their new surroundings and meet their teachers, ready for September! (Parents to drop off and collect children at the end of the session).
