Important Dates for your Diary 2021

Welcome Meetings

Due to current restrictions we will be holding our official welcome meeting and school tour over three separate dates to ensure we can maintain social distancing. These meetings will take place on Friday 2nd July, Monday 5th July and Tuesday 6th July at 10:30am. Each session will last approximately 1 hour. You will only need to attend one session. 

Stay and Play Session

On Wednesday 7th July, we will welcome all our new Reception pupils into school for a Stay and Play session. Children will have the chance to meet their new teachers and friends and play in their new classroom from 10:30-11:30. We kindly ask parents to drop their child off at 9:30 at the side entrance and collect them at 11:30 where all children and their parent(s) will be invited into the school hall for a free school lunch until 12:00pm.

Nursery Visits

Before your child starts school with us we will contact their current nursery setting to arrange a telephone conversation or (if possible) a visit. 

Meet the Teacher

From Monday 6th September 2021, we will be inviting all children and their parents into school for a meeting. This will give you’re the chance to talk to your child’s new class teacher on a one-to-one basis. The meeting will last for approximately 20 minutes. We will answer your questions and discuss any personal information which you may wish to share with us, ahead of your child starting school.
