Starting School

The Reception classes will be arranged  as  much  as  possible  into  four groups that are equal in terms of spread of ages, and distribution of boys and girls. 

Each teacher will differentiate the work, that is, they will aim the work to the ability of the individual children in their classes, so that each child is working at a level they are capable of, and all have the opportunity of reaching their maximum potential.

For Reception children the initial entry to school is staggered over the first week of term. In the first week nine children will start on the first morning and afternoon, starting with the oldest. They will be added to throughout the week so that all children are attending by Friday. They will continue to attend either mornings or afternoons for the second week and then the third week they will all attend in the mornings and then stay for lunch.  This is done so that the children are eased into school in smaller groups, and it is very important time for them to get to know their teacher and nursery nurse, as well as to mix in a smaller group of children.

These part-time weeks give the teachers and nursery nurses a better chance to undertake an entry assessment which we consider to be very important. If parents wish to continue part-time education for a longer  period, we are happy to arrange this with you.  

These arrangements are purely for the benefit of the children and have proved extremely beneficial in past years.
