Welcome Booklet for Nursery Pupils

Welcome Booklet for Reception Pupils

We are very excited about your child starting in September and are looking forward to getting to know them. However, we do understand that even the most confident children can be shy or a little reluctant to talk to staff they are unfamiliar with. To help overcome this during the first few weeks, we would like to offer your child an activity to complete ready for their first few days at school.
