Transition

Transfer from Nursery to Reception

Children progress from Nursery to the Reception Class in the September following their fourth birthday.  The School endeavours to make the transition as smooth as possible for both the children and their parents.

In  their last term in Nursery the children will spend time in the Reception Classrooms with their teacher for the following year. Having this opportunity helps to familiarise the children  with their new environment.  Weekly swimming lessons are also introduced to again prepare the children for the first term in the Reception Class.

To help parents understand the progression from Nursery to School we hold ' New to School Mornings' to give them the opportunity to spend time with the Reception Class teachers. The parents can ask any questions they may have and generally discuss the  curriculum, organisation and structure of the Reception Year in the Junior School.
