What happens after

 

Parents of children who are offered a place to start in Reception Class in September 2019 will be invited to an information meeting in June.  

 

After that, around June / July, we will invite the new children in for 2 sessions to meet each other and get to know their new teacher and classroom.  This helps to familiarise them with the school setting so that they feel ready to start in September.

 

When the children start school we ease them in gradually, so they will only come in for half a day for the first week or so. More details of the starting arrangements will be provided nearer the time.
