Starting School


Starting school is an exciting yet anxious time for some children (and parents)! Every effort is made to ensure a smooth transition from home to pre-school / nursery.


Prior to starting school, children and parents are invited to some drop-in sessions when they have the opportunity to spend some time in the Foundation unit and meet the staff who work there. These visits enable children and parents to become familiar with the school and ask any questions they may have. This is followed by a morning when parents drop their child off with their new teacher so they can get used to being in school on their own. We also carry out 'Time to Talk' home visits at the start of the term.
