Parental Survey – Reopening of Schools Planning
Offer of places from June 2020
I recently wrote to you asking for your patience whilst we start our planning towards re-opening for some year groups (Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 6) as well as the children currently in school because they are vulnerable or children of key workers. In order to help us to plan, we now need to know how many children from Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 would want a place when it is safe to offer it.
New Nursery and Reception Intake 2020-21
We are really pleased to welcome our new Nursery and Reception children who will join us in September. In these uncertain times, we are all living in the moment and finding it difficult to make plans for the near future. We currently don’t know what the situation will be in September but we will keep parents updated via the website as soon as we have any information. In the meantime, a member of the Early Years team will be contacting pre-school settings to discuss your child’s Learning Journey so far. If you have any queries please contact us on [email protected] and your e-mail will be allocated to a member of staff who can deal with your enquiry.
Further information regarding the sharing of information about transition to school and how we will support the children and families over the coming months will be available on the New Reception Intake and New Nursery Intake sections under the Parents tab soon.
