We offer a series of events, during the Summer Term, which take place in order to ensure a smooth transition into school:

* During the summer term, our Early Years teachers visit your child in their current setting (if they attend a local pre-school/nursery)

* Your child is invited to attend our ‘Stay and Play’ sessions, throughout May, June and July

* Parents are invited to attend a New Parents’ Meeting

* Your child is invited to attend ‘drop off’ sessions in their new class towards the end of the summer term

* The week before they start school, your child’s class teacher offers you a home visit

We provide a staggered start to school during the first few weeks of September. This allows us to make home visits. The home visits enable us to get to know you and your child really well before they start school. We aim for all children to be full time by Monday 20th September.
