LOOKING TO START SCHOOL IN SEPTEMBER 2023?
Thank you for considering Saltwood Church of England Primary School for your child. You are making an important decision and we wish to do all we can to support you in this process.
Please contact the school office (details below) to book a tour of our school and its grounds so that you can see how our children learn and play together. Tour dates are available every week until Christmas!
If you decide to apply for a place at our school, please refer to the admissions section of our website for full details.
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 two story and singing times with their new teacher and class.
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.
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.
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.
