Entry to Year R in September 2020

We are delighted that your child has been offered a place to join us in September 2020 and look forward to meeting you shortly.

Despite the current situation with Covid-19, we will endeavour to make the transition from home to school as smooth as possible but will inevitably be making some changes to our usual transition programme. This will need to evolve over the summer term as we know more about how long the current restrictions will be in place.

We are pleased to be able to show you a pre-recorded presentation which will provide you with information about our school, the curriculum delivered in Year R, the outline of the start of school and important forms and dates to remember.
