As soon as a place has been confirmed, you should contact the school, in order to make arrangements for you to visit us and discuss any specific arrangements for your child.

For children joining our school in September, there will be a series of meetings arranged during the Summer Term including home visits, visits to your child's nursery or pre-school if applicable and Round Robin Meetings, where various members of the school community will talk to you about general issues such as uniform and school dinner. This will enable you to raise any specific issues/concerns. Arrangements are made for your child to visit the school during the Summer Term on several occasions so that everything is familiar to them before joining in September.
