All parents/carers of children due to start school in September will be invited to an information meeting in June where we will share lots of information about the Reception year will look like for your child.

In July, we will be inviting the children and parents in for 45 minute stay and play sessions from 1.45 to 2.30pm (end of the school day). This is a chance for the children to explore the setting and everything Reception has to offer whilst remaining with their familiar adult. It's also a chance for staff to meet the children and get a sense of how they interact with the environment.

We do home visits for all children before they start in reception. The Home Visit allows staff to meet the children where they are most comfortable and to find out the last few pieces of information that will help us build a Reception year that is right for your child.
