Parent events

It is very important that you are part of your child’s learning. Each half term we ask parents to come into school to play with their children. We hold events such as ladies and gentlemen’s afternoons to celebrate Mothers and Father’s Day.

Tiddlers and toddlers

Every afternoon from 2pm - 3pm we hold stay and play sessions for preschool children. The children and adults have the opportunity to develop their play skills alongside their peers, make relationships and enjoy collaborating with others.

Transition meetings Home to Nursery

Before your child starts in the Nursery, you will be invited to attend our stay and play sessions to prepare children for the transition to Nursery. We welcome families to visit the setting and meet the staff who will be involved in your child's early education.

Your child will have an opportunity to explore the setting and get to know some of their future friends.

Another part of our transition process between home and school is visiting your child's home environment.
A home visit gives your child a chance to establish positive relationships and meet a key person in their school life. It also gives our families a chance to reinforce our view of Parents as Partners involved in their child's education.

Transition meetings Nursery to Reception

Before your child starts in Reception, we invite families to attend our transition meeting which take place after school hours. We also provide stay and play sessions for you and your child to see the setting, get to know the Early Years Team and establish the first links to an appropriate transition process. During this visit, you also have the chance to discuss any other issues or concerns regarding your child’s education.
