Transition Events

(Please refer to your email for individual dates and times)

1.  Meet The Teacher (for children new to our school)

You and your child will be invited into school to meet one of the Early Years Teachers. This is an opportunity to talk about any worries or concerns you may have for your child and share important information that relates specifically to your son/daughter. You will also be welcome to have a look at the teaching areas and we will be able to show your child around. This usually lasts about 30 minutes. Please remember to bring a face covering for all parents attending.


2. Stay & Play 1

    Bring your child to school so that they can stay and play with a small group of other children and get to know the staff who will be working with them. Parents will not be allowed into the school building but are welcome to remain in the outside play area while their child settles.


3. Stay & Play 2

    A second visit as above. Older children will be invited to stay for lunch too.


4. Staggered Start

    Children will be given a date on which to start school full time. We will start a few children each day until the class is full.  Initially, due to Government advice school times for EYFS children will be as follows

Nursery aged children         8.30am- 11.30am

Reception aged children     8.30am-  2.30pm

Please note we will not be able to allow parents into the school building except for the initial meeting with a teacher, please wear a mask for this appointment. After this first visit, parents are encouraged to leave their children at the classroom door, where staff will welcome them in.
