Transition to EYFS
Starting school is an exciting time but it can sometimes be difficult for younger children. We therefore plan this time carefully to support children with the transition and to ensure it is as smooth as possible for each child and that they settle into their new class quickly and happily.
During the Summer Term (June/July) the Foundation Stage teachers will visit local nurseries or pre-schools. The teachers will meet the children and talk to pre-school staff about their individual strengths, needs, interest and areas for development. Prior to starting in September, the Foundation Stage staff will organise a home visit where they will visit children in their home. This is an excellent opportunity to begin to build positive relationships in a setting that is familiar to the child. When the time arrives for children to start school officially in September, the following procedures will apply to enable children to gradually adjust to their surroundings.
