TRANSITION EVENTS

Once you have secured a place at Saltwood, we  have a programme of transition events in the Summer Term to support a smooth and enjoyable start to school life:

HOME VISITS AND NURSERY VISITS

Home visits allow us to meet you and your child in an informal setting and begin our effective partnership. We also visit your child in their nursery setting and each nursery is invited to bring the children to school for an additional visit.

NEW PARENT INDUCTION MEETING AND SCHOOL VISIT

You are invited to attend an induction meeting whilst your child visits their new classroom for an afternoon to play  with a small group of current EY children and  children who will be in their class.

STORY AND SINGING TIMES

Your child will be invited in to enjoy story and singing times  with their new teacher and class.

SCHOOL EVENTS

You are most welcome to join us for Sports Day and our Summer Fete.

 

If your child is not yet 5 at the beginning of the academic year, we can discuss a more flexible approach to starting school if this is appropriate.

ORIENTATION SESSION

This is held once your child has started school to provide further information.

FRIENDS OF SALTWOOD SCHOOL 

An afternoon tea for new parents is held early in the new term where you can meet other parents from our PFA.

PARENT PARTNERSHIP

We enjoy a close partnership with parents and have an open door policy if you should wish to speak to us at any time.  You will be kept updated throughout your child’s time in Early Years by Tapestry,  parents’ evenings, stay and play sessions and times to come and share Learning Journey book.
