Preparing for School and Transition
Starting school is a milestone for both you and your child and as the 'big day' grows nearer, you both may feel excited and nervous in equal measures.
Preparing your child for their new life in school and teaching them the basic skills they need will help them have confidence when the start of term arrives.
The links below have useful ideas and activities to help with preparation and transition; however it is important to remember that every child is different and may not learn at the same pace.

This leaflet will help parents understand how we keep your children safe by informing you about:
All schools (as well as other organisations) have a duty to safeguard children from radicalisation and extremism.
This means schools have a responsibility to protect children from extremist and violent views, in the same way we protect them from drugs or gang violence.
Importantly, we can provide a safe place for pupils to discuss these issues so that they better understand how to protect themselves.
The school was inspected in March 2022. This was a full inspection and the school is pleased to have received an incredibly positive report. The school has been rated as 'good' in all five inspection areas. The inspectors found the pupils to be happy, safe and hardworking with good behaviour and positive attitudes to learning and the school.
"Pupils and staff ‘believe and achieve together’ at this inclusive school".
."Pupils have positive attitudes to school. They work hard. Relationships between pupils and staff are warm and positive".

We are proud to be using our working kitchen to provide our school dinners. The school kitchen is run by Leicestershire Food Support Services.
All children in Foundation Stage, Year 1 and Year 2 are eligible for free school meals under the Universal Free School Meals Programme.
School meals should be paid for in advance, preferably via Parent Pay. Any money sent into school should be in an envelope or purse clearly marked with the child’s name, class and amount enclosed.
Up to date information about the cost of school meals is available from the office.
Your child may bring a packed lunch together with a fruit type squash or milk drink in a screw top container if they wish. Children are not permitted to bring drinks in cans or glass bottles. They should not bring fizzy drinks to school. Water is always available.
Many children bring a snack for break time. We encourage children to bring this in a container with their name on it. We prefer it if children do not bring sweets.Through the National Fruit Scheme, children in Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 receive a piece of fresh fruit each day and do not need to bring another snack to school.
Chilled water is available for the children at all times. We do ask the children to bring a small plastic bottle to school which can be filled during the day.
You are urged to avoid booking a family holiday during term time. Following government guidelines, we can only grant leave for exceptional circumstances. Please note that an unauthorised leave of absence could result in a penalty notice being issued.
If your child has unauthorised leave of absence you may either be issued with a Penalty Notice of £120 per parent per child (discounted to £60 if paid within 21 days), or, your case could be referred by the Local Authority directly to the Magistrates' Court for the purposes of a criminal prosecution.
Applications to the Headteacher for term time holiday will be considered individually using criteria as detailed in our attendance policy.
If you need to take your child out of school for any reason you will need to fill in a Leave of Absence form stating the reason for absence. All requests will receive a reply advising whether the absence is authorised or not.
Please click the image to download the school leave of absence form.
A number of after-school clubs will be starting this term and will run up to the beginning of December, (exceptions to this are detailed on the downloadable form). The clubs involve hard work and commitment from the staff who run them and there is an expectation that if a child chooses to attend a specific club, then they make a commitment and attend each session.
Please indicate the club(s) your child would like to
attend and return the form to school as soon as possible. Some clubs
have a restricted number of places available and will be issued on a
first come, first served basis.
As these clubs run after-school, please inform us of how your child will go home.
We also run a variety of lunchtime activities for all children each day. This gives opportunities for more children to take part in structured activities and games.
