We recognise that starting a new class or school can be challenging for some children, especially if it is for the first time. We aim to make the transition to Nursery and into Reception as smooth as possible by working closely with parents and previous settings and professionals.
Children normally start school in smaller groups in September to help them form relationships and when possible are encouraged to visit before starting. We welcome information from parents about their child as an individual. We also liaise with previous settings to ensure we full understand the developmental needs of all children in our care.
Children, who are already in the school are able to visit their new classes and meet new teachers gradually before they move up. Our highly qualified staff also join in with play sessions before the transition times so children see a familiar face when moving to the next stage in their education journey.
