Starting school for the first time in EYFS

Starting big school is the beginning of a great adventure for children;  we work closely with the local pre-schools, parents and carers to ensure we are fully aware of every child's need and can ensure a smooth and seamless transition.   

To ensure that children are prepared and ready for school we host a number of induction events that take place in the summer term and these include where possible: 

  •     Welcome events 
  •     Home visits 
  •     Graduated start to school 
  •     Additional visits for those who may benefit from this 

These events are a great opportunity for children to meet their teacher and their peers. The events also help children to become familiar with the school environment to enable them to feel more confident when they attend in September. 

If you are joining us in September 2021, our Early Years handbook is a great source of information. If you have any further questions then please contact the school office.   

Moving onto secondary school

In Year 6, we begin to plan their transition to secondary school, giving children the opportunity to visit their chosen school and completing activities in preparation for this new start. 

Where further support is needed, we can tailor a more bespoke plan in consultation with parents and the secondary school. 

We feed into both Matravers in Westbury and Kingdown in Warminster. Click on the school to find out more information on each of their primary transition programmes.
