We were delighted to meet our new EYFS parents at the Staggered Entry Parents Meeting on Wednesday 12th August 2020 to help them learn further about:
Our international bilingual structure
A brief explanation of the curriculum that your child will be following in the EYFS at BVIS
The arrangements for staggered start to school
Suggestions for you to support your child at home
At BVIS, we run a ‘staggered entry’ programme, tailored to each child to allow them to confidently transition into full time school.
‘Staggered entry’ is used as a means of getting to know your child and of giving them the time, care and attention that they need as they start a new school. It allows your child to get to know the adults, routines and structures of the environment gradually, so that they do not become overwhelmed by all the new things that they have to learn. Our Foundation 1 children usually take a little longer during the staggered entry programme compared to the Foundation 3 children, but all children are different, and we work with you as parents and carers to decide on the most appropriate schedule for your child.
