We have four transition days over four weeks for our new reception children going into Elephant Class. Each transition sessions lasts for an hour and follow the structure below:
1st session: Parents are invited to stay and play with their children for the whole hour, all meeting the class teacher.
2nd session: Parents bring their children to class to settle children and then they are welcome to leave their children for half an hour whilst the parents get to know one another and chat over coffee and biscuits.
3rd session: Parents will bring children to class but then will have an opportunity to meet the leadership team and therapists whilst their children remain in their new class with their new class teacher and learning support assistants.
4th session: Parents will drop their children off at school so that the children stay for the whole hour without their parents ready for starting school in September.
We work closely with the preschool to ensure a smooth transition to Reception and to continue each child’s individual learning journey.
