Starting School


We are delighted that you have chosen our Nursery or Reception for your child. We are very much looking forward to welcoming and working with your family. We appreciate that starting anything new can be daunting and that starting school is a big and exciting step on the next part of your child's educational journey. We want to make that journey as easy and enjoyable as possible. Please take the time to look at some of the resources below which should help with the transition.
