Transition Arrangements to our Reception Class 2020

  We realise that, in these uncertain times, our very youngest learners will not be able to    experience transition into primary school as previous cohorts have.

  Our aim is to make this as stress free as possible for both children and parents  and to give you as much    information as you need ready for starting.  We are very excited to meet all our new parents and    children as soon as it is safe to do so.

  We will be updating this page as we move closer to the new academic year and our Early Years staff will      be contacting you with information and to answer any questions you might have. 

  If you would like to contact our school office in the meantime, our number is 01226 711332.
