Starting School

In the Summer Term prior to entry in September, Reception children and their families are invited to spend an induction morning in school to discuss preparation for starting school and to learn about the routines. The children have time to meet their teacher and experience activities in their new classroom.

In September, a programme of home visiting is arranged by the teacher and teaching assistant, prior to the children starting school. This is the start to the home-school partnership and ensures that each child receives individual care and attention at this important stage in their life.
