    Staggered Start Times for Early Years Foundation Stage

    The team aim to ensure your child settles as quickly and happily as possible into their new class setting.To further ease your child’s transition into school, the first two weeks of the new school year will be staggered for our youngest FS starters and the first week staggered for our FS2 starters. Not only will this support your child to gently and confidently adjust to their new environment but it also provides a valuable opportunity to chat with the class teacher and receive feedback about these important first few days at school.
