Admission to Reception Class
Children are admitted in small groups during the first few weeks of the Autumn Term. Initially, they attend part-time, progressing to full-time attendance over a four to six week period. Younger children, whose birthdays occur between April and August, have a slightly longer period of induction prior to attending full-time. Parents can request flexibility in starting full-time Reception class education and extending part-time attendance.
In July each year, we hold an evening introductory meeting for parents of new Reception children. The children make a daytime visit and meet each other and staff. Reception Staff make home visits to each child before they start at the school. Teachers hold an initial conference with each parent when their child begins school.
