Transition into Reception June - July 2022

Induction into Reception in September 2022

It is very important to us that our children experience as smooth a transition into school as possible. We want to ensure we have time to get to know the children and they get to know us. Also, as we have such a large number of children all joining Reception at the same time, it is imperative we establish routines and expectations in a calm and measured manner.  For these reasons, we offer a staggered start to the year in September. Children will attend for parts of the day and build up to full days. Children begin attending full time in their fourth week of school.
