Foundation Stage Parents
During the Autumn term the school holds an Open Evening for Prospective Parents for the following September. The evening allows parents to meet Mr Littler and the Senior Leadership team and to look around the school. Personal viewings of the school can also be booked during school time with Mr Littler or Mrs Dilorenzo.
Once a place is offered at the end of April, pupils and parents are invited to an initial meeting or a home visit with Mrs Lawton the Foundation Stage leader. Mrs Lawton then visits the children in their nursery or pre-school setting during June. After these meetings the three classes are formed.
Early in July the children are invited, during the Whole School Transition Week, to five sessions – either morning or afternoon sessions in school with their class teacher and new class friends. For the first two weeks of the new term in September the children attend school part time for either morning or afternoon sessions. We hold a final induction meeting for all parents early in October to cover any issues that may have arisen. Thereafter we have the usual Parents’ Evenings and meetings in the same way as the rest of the school.
