Settling In

Pupils starting school in September are invited to come along with their parents in June to meet the Year 1 teacher and learning support assistants. The children are able to familiarise themselves with the classroom and enjoy playing some games in the playroom.

The parents are also asked to meet with the prinicipal and Year 1 teacher in June to receive an introductory pack for themselves and their child. All settling in procedures are explained at this meeting.

We have established strong links with Kylemore Nursery, although we welcome children from a variety of pre-school settings every year. The children's teacher visits them in their nursery setting as part of transition arrangements.
