Welcome to our New Starters page.
Here you will find vital information, important dates and details about school life.
Please take the time to read all of the information below.
As your child begins an exciting new stage of their life with us, we would like to share some information with you.
Our Reception Year is made up of four classes:
Willow – Hedgehog – Poppy – Duckling
The year group leader is Mrs Emma Matthews.
MEET AND GREET
We invite your child, accompanied by one parent, to attend a MEET AND GREET session to spend time in their new classroom and to meet their new teacher to ask any questions. Children do not need to wear school uniform for this event.
This will either be for one morning or one afternoon on:
Monday 7th September
Tuesday 8th September
Wednesday 9th September
Please look out for a ParentMail booking form.
We will confirm your child’s date and time in September.
Flying Start has been set up to ensure families feel supported in helping their child prepare for the transition from a childcare setting to their new school. This is a big step for all involved and this website provides lovely resources and ideas to support parents in getting their children ready. You can find this information in the Transition Area.
All children will start school part time from Monday 14th September. School uniform should be worn from this date.
All children will be in school full time from Monday 21st September.
Please look out for an email with your child’s dates and times.
We would usually be offering a home visit. Unfortunately due to current guidelines we are unable to offer these this year.
In Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 all children receive a free school dinner; this is due to the Universal Infant Free School Meal initiative by the Government. There is no packed lunch option until Year 3.
We expect all new starters to be wearing school uniform from when they begin to attend part-time, week commencing Monday 14th September.
Boys must wear grey trousers, white polo shirt or white shirt and maroon jumper.
Girls must wear grey skirt or trousers, white polo shirt or white blouse and maroon cardigan or jumper.
All school branded uniform can be purchased from the school office.
Shoes must be black, no trainers or sandals.
No patterns or lines in hair and no earrings.
A Foundation Stage curriculum statement will appear here soon – watch this space!
