Our main aim in EYFS is to give children a happy and confident start at school by welcoming them to our pre-school programme. This includes a varied range of activities in the summer term, to prepare the children for the big and exciting event of starting school.
Parents are given as much information as possible at this stage and we are happy to answer any individual questions. Children are given a pack of books and activities to share at home and bring back to school on their next visits, to support them in their transition to school.
In September, the Reception children begin school on a part-time basis for a very short time, to settle them quickly, give them the time they need with key adults and to begin to develop good relationships, helping them to feel secure and happy at school very quickly.
Here are a few helpful comments from some of our lovely infant children:
“Helmshore Primary School is a very happy place and you’ll make lots of friends here.”
“You will learn lots of new things.”
“All the children and adults at our school are really kind.”
“If you need anything, you can just ask the teachers.”
“You’ll get to do lots of fun things”
“We’re looking forward to seeing you!”
“You’ll love our school!”
The process of settling the children is usually very quick and good relationships are formed within a short period of time. We look forward to welcoming your child to our school!
