Starting at Churchill C of E Primary
If you choose Churchill C of E Primary School for your child, we will support your child with their transition from Pre-School and it will be an opportunity for both you and your child to get to know the school.
During the Summer term our Foundation Stage teachers will visit all of the Pre-Schools to get to know your child in a setting that is familiar to them. The teachers then structure the two Reception classes accordingly and will notify you of which class your child will be going into and who their teacher and teaching assistant will be.
You and your child will then be invited into the school in July to two sessions. The first introductory sessions is where the children go to their new classes to meet other children in their class, meet their teacher and become familiar with their new environment. At the same time parents are invited into our small hall to have a cup of tea, meet other parents and purchase any uniform from the PTA.
The second session takes place in our main hall where there is a short talk from the Headteacher and Foundation Stage team. The School Meals provider and School Nurse also attend and we give you a ‘Starting School’ pack full of information needed. The children meanwhile have a second session in their new classrooms exploring different activities and getting to know other children.
We do have a phased start to starting school and Children attend school mornings only for the first few weeks of term. The teachers will spend the afternoons of the first few weeks carrying out individual parent meetings.
We look forward to welcoming you to our happy and hardworking school. We hope you and your child will have the best primary school experience possible.
