Reception Induction Arrangements 

When your child is allocated a place in our school, there is a full induction process.  All new Reception parents attend an induction meeting (currently via zoom), this will give you the opportunity to meet teachers and find out more information about our school.  Every new parent will receive a pack containing all the information you need to know.  All new Reception children are visited in their home setting by nursery staff, if your child is attending a private day nursery, teachers will meet with your child's key worker.  'Stay and Play' sessions are organised for small groups of both children and parents to attend (dependent on current restrictions).  You will receive your child's induction timetable for September, as children are in smaller groups for a shorter amount of time to enable your child to become familiar and comfortable within the setting, the hours gradually increase until your child is attending full-time.
