Parents/Carers of Children Due to start New Reception Class In September 2021
For the parents and carers of children who will be joining us in the September in either our Nursery or Reception classes, we hold New Parents Evenings in June At this meeting, parents meet the Nursery and Reception staff and the Leadership team. We share information about our school and parents can ask any questions. This is also an opportunity to have a look round the school, in particular the Early Years Unit. At the end of the evening, parents are able to come and discuss any individual concerns/worries they may have with staff.
The first week of the Autumn term members from the Nursery team will meet the new children in their own familiar setting. Whether this be at home with their parent/s or in a Private Day Care Nursery. Starting dates and times will have been given to all parents at the parent meeting in June. These will be staggered throughout the month of September enabling your child to have a relaxed and enjoyable start to Westroyd.
Reception children will be invited to attend a stay and play session in school during the Summer 2 term, prior to starting in Reception class in September.
In September children will start week one by attending half days only. Either morning or afternoon and will also have the chance to stay for lunch on one of the days. Week two all children will be in their reception class full time. Again this will enable a relaxed and happy start to Westroyd for your child.
Open Sessions for parents of children due to start Nursery or Reception Classes in September 2021.
