As soon as we know that you are coming to us we send you a letter with lots of invitations to special events. There is a 'Welcome Evening', taster sessions for you and your child, workshops for parents, nursery visits, a home visit and an opportunity for your child to join our 'Puppies Pre-School'. Puppies Pre-School is led by Tracy Kent, Head teacher and Claire Smith the EYFS Leader, supported by the EYFS team. Puppies enjoy six weekly sessions of fun and learning about school. Tracy and Claire love running these sessions as it gives them an opportunity to get to know the children and families before September. We advise you not to take your child out of their pre-school provision for these sessions but rather use these as an additional transition opportunity. If your child cannot join Puppies, don't worry, there are plenty of opportunities planned within our transition programme. We recommend that you and your child take full advantage of this and attend as much as possible, as this will give your child the best possible start they can have!
