Transition Process for Children starting Reception Class in September 2023

During the summer term before your child starts in Reception, they will be invited to join us for a number of afternoon sessions and one full day in Class 1 with Miss McConnell.  This gives children the opportunity to get to know the teachers, make friends, and we believe helps with a smooth transition for starting full time in September. 

Parents will also be invited in to school to meet with staff and this will be your opportunity to discuss and share any necessary information.
