Welcome to our new starters

A welcome message from Mrs Darby

It was so lovely to meet lots of our new parents at the welcome meeting last night. I hope that you found this informative. We are looking forward to meeting the children during our stay and play session on Saturday. Don't forget to bring your completed forms along with you. 

Please have a look through the documents below that were shared during our meeting. If you have any questions, or need to sign up for a home visit, please ring the school office and ask to speak to Mrs Darby. 

Our induction  program - 2022


We are looking forward to getting to know you and your son/ daughter before they start school in September. We know that this is a special time for your child and we hope to make this transition into school as smooth as possible. 


Parent information meeting

All parents are invited to our welcome meeting on Monday 6th June. This will be an opportunity for you to meet school staff and for us to share key information about our school and our Reception class with you. There will also be an opportunity for your family to sign up for a 'stay and play' session and a home visit. 


Stay and play session

Children and their parents are invited to join Reception staff for a 'stay and play' session on Saturday 11th June. This will be a great opportunity for your child to get to know staff a little better and to spend some time investigating our indoor and outdoor area, with the support of their adults. Please contact school to book your slot.


Home visit

During the last few weeks of term, staff will come and visit you at home. This is an opportunity for parents to ask any questions and for staff to gather all the important information we need to know about your child before they start school. Please contact school to book your slot.


Starting school in September - half days

The first day of school for all children will be Wednesday 7th September. For the first 3 days, children will attend for half days only. Only half the class will be in school for each session and this will allow your child to settle into our new routines in smaller groups. If you are unsure whether your child is attending for the morning or afternoon session, please contact the school office. 

Morning session - 9:15 am to 11:15 am

Afternoon session - 1:20 pm to 3:00 pm


All children will start school full-time on Monday 12th September 2022.
