Starting Nursery and Reception
We work very hard to ensure that children have a smooth transition into Nursery and Reception. We recognise that the move into a new school or year group is a big one – often for parents and carers as much as for the students.
We hope you find our administration meeting and induction presentation positive. These are organised to allow a seamless transition for your child, ensuring that students entering Nursery or Reception settle in quickly and with ease. Please refer to the information in the letters you will have received as well as additional documents during your administration meeting.
To help your child with the transition into a new class in September we have created videos with key information and photographs. Please refer to the curriculum and school newsletters for key dates and any updates to start/finish times or changes for each year group/class.
We hope you find the videos useful.
