In Somerset there
is one admission in September for all children whose fifth birthday falls in
the following academic year.
we aim to make the transition into school as smooth and happy as possible. At
our New Parents evening, you have the opportunity to look round again and Mrs
Holt will run through the procedures for starting school. This meeting provides an informal and
friendly opportunity for you to meet other new parents and familiarise yourself
with the setting. You will also receive our Starting School booklet, full of
useful information and forthcoming dates. In addition, the PTA will be on hand to introduce themselves and encourage you to be involved in a number of fundraising and social events throughout the year.
During the summer
term before they start school, children are invited to attend story times and
play sessions with the class teacher, Mrs Holt and the other children in
Hedgehog Class. Mrs Holt also visits the children in their pre-school setting
and in their home.
In September we
recommend that children attend school for mornings only and some lunch times
for the first three weeks..
Our aim is to work
in partnership with parents and to settle your child quickly into their life at
