Transition into Reception

We work very hard to ensure that children have a smooth transition in to the Reception classes.

Children from our school Nursery visit the Reception classes once a week during the summer term. Reception class teachers also visit Nursery to meet the children and read them a story.

Reception teachers also carry out home visits for the children who do not attend the school Nursery. They also visit children at other early years settings.

All parents of children who will start Reception in September are invited to an induction meeting and workshop. They can meet the Headteacher Mrs Savill, EYFS Phase Leader Mrs Kain (also a Reception Class teacher) Reception class teacher Mrs Harvey and an opportunity to meet the School Nurse. Parents are also be able to explore a range of Reception activities and resources.

For those of you that missed our ‘New to Reception’ Meeting, below is the presentation that was shown, with all the relevant information you may need:
