New Parents September 2020

We are all very much looking forward to be meeting your special little ones and cannot wait for them to start school hopefully in September. However, we understand this can be a big change for you all at home and we want to reassure you our main priority is that your child settles well and enjoys their time at our school. This is a big milestone in your child’s development and they will be starting their journey in developing their learning skills, becoming independent in their everyday routines and gaining new relationships. 

Please do not hesitate to contact us through the school office if you have any questions or queries, we would love to hear from you. These will then be passed onto the reception team who will directly answer your messages. 

Below we have attached information that you may find useful to help prepare your child with starting school. Here are activities for children to kick start their learning, new parent guides and checklists to help you feel ready.
