A WELCOME MEETING
Once you have been offered a place at either our Reception or Nursery class you and your child will be invited to a short but important meeting. This gives you both a chance to see the classroom where your child will be working and to meet the teacher and some of the other children. This visit is essential as it helps children to feel confident about starting school.
If you are offered a place at our Reception or Nursery class we will arrange a home visit before your child starts. Home visits will last approximately 30 – 45 minutes and you will be visited by one of our teaching staff who will be accompanied by either a Teaching Assistant or an Early Years Educator.
During a home visit staff will:
1. Talk to you and your child
2. Complete the Pre Entry Forms
3. Answer any questions or concerns you may have
4. Confirm the date when your child will start
Parents are welcome to come and tour our school to see how we do things. The tours last approximately 30 – 45 minutes and you will be among either 3 or 4 sets of other parents. If you would like to come and have a look around either of our sites please contact the school office and they will be able to give you the next available dates.
