Usually at this time of year we start to prepare children for moving to their new class.

Unfortunately due to current COVID-19 pandemic, we are unable to offer you our normal transition programme.

However, we do understand how anxious children and their families can become when they are faced with the unknown.

To alleviate some of your anxieties, we have put together year group pages to introduce you to your new class and your new class teacher(s) and teaching assistants. I hope these will answer some of your questions. For example, what does my new teacher look like? Where do I enter and exit school? Where will I have my playtimes? What will my classroom look like?

You should have had a phone call or received your child's report to inform you which class your child will be in next year.
