We are delighted that your child will be joining our Reception in September and we are looking forward to getting, or in many cases continuing, to get to know them!
Starting school should be a happy and exciting time for both your child and for you. We know that you will have lots of questions to ask us and hope the information here will begin to answer at least some of those questions.
We hope that you are looking forward to September, even if things are a bit tricky at the moment. We will do our very best to make you and your child feel secure and valued and ready for the start of the new school year. Our aim is to provide your child with the best education possible and we hope that you will work with us, in partnership, to achieve this aim.
Below is our Reception 2021-2022 transition PowerPoint and School Readiness Leaflet which we hope will provide you with some useful information.
During the summer each year, Sandwell School Nursing Team run a School Readiness Project. The aim of the project is to help support children to be ready for school in September and give advice to parents. As you will know, children develop at different rates. Some children will be turning five when they start in Reception and others will only just have turned four. Some children are ready and raring to go! Other children may need a little extra time and help to get used to the idea. Each summer families are invited to attend our school readiness community days for fun and freebies. Unfortunately this year due to the Pandemic we have changed our delivery sessions. The sessions will be delivered virtually to families, please see the poster attached for further details of how to take part.
