Starting School

We are delighted that your child will be joining us in September and we look forward to meeting you all at the start of this exciting journey.  Our aim is to work in partnership with you to make the transition into school a smooth, pleasant and happy experience for you and your child.

We have been busy planning our new induction arrangements for the children and in light of the current situation we have amended our induction programme to give your child the best possible start to school in a virtual way.

We will be using Tapestry to communicate with you prior to your child starting school so please ensure you set up your account when you receive your activation link on the 15th of June. This will provide plenty of opportunity for you and your child to get to know the school and their teachers before starting with us.

If you have any queries, please contact the school office or your child’s class teacher on Tapestry.

We look forward to meeting you soon.
