Parents of prospective new entrants are always invited to bring their children to visit the school before joining us.  We like new parents to visit during the working day so that they can see the school in action.

New entrants to Reception will be invited to spend time in Dragonfly Class before they join us, working alongside the other class members.  This helps them to get to know the children, staff and school environment so that their transition from home to school is as calm and as happy as possible.  Prior to admission, the Reception class teaching team visit our new children and their parents at home to get to know them better.
