EYFS September 2020 Intake Information

Information and virtual transition materials for pupils who will be joining us from September 2020 onwards. 

Parents/Carers should also refer to the Emergency updates page for communications sent to all families in relation to our September 2020 opening. 

13th July 2020


Dear Parents/Carers, 

We hope that you are well and the children are excited about starting school very soon.

We hope that you are pleased that we have managed to bring the children’s full-time start with us forward, having completed the home visits this term.

Parents/Carers will be contacted before the summer holiday to indicate which group their child is in for the half day attendance. Everyone will follow the below transition pattern. Usual parent workshops will be videoed by staff and emailed out instead.   

  • 7th – Half of children – Group 1: 10.00-11.00, parents to play with children in the outside areas
  • 7th – Half of children – Group 2: 13.30-14.30, as above


  • 8th – Half of children – Group 2: 9.30-11.30
  • 8th – Half of children – Group 1: 13.30-15.30


  • 9th – Half of children – Group 2: 9.30-11.30
  • 9th – Half of children 13.30-15.30


  • 10th – All children 9.30-13.15
  • 11th – All children all day going forward


For all of the above, children need to be brought into school following our one-way system. This also helps them to become familiar with school systems. For the first event, where parents are welcomed in, we must insist that parents keep their distance from one another. However, children can mix as they will in class.

Please remember to read through all the information being sent out to the school community, as this will now apply to your child. We do expect children to wear school uniform from their first day. The children will be given their complimentary water bottle on their first day.

Kind regards,


Mrs R Griffiths
