Children who attend our Nursery are given opportunities to participate in whole school events such as assemblies, before moving into the Reception class. In the term before they are due to start full time education all children are invited to a series of visits to meet their teacher and to become familiar with their environment. Parents are invited to an induction meeting with the Headteacher and Foundation Stage staff where routines and expectations are shared. This is an ideal opportunity to have all your questions answered!
