EYFS Induction 2022

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for choosing  Shobnall Primary & Nursery School for your child! We are delighted that you have chosen our school for your child’s nursery or primary education. 

Our website will have all of the information you need to help support your induction to our setting, and will be updated with further resources as and when they are ready. For example, we will be uploading a welcome booklet which will tell you all about our exciting new curriculum for Early Years!

We understand that your child starting nursery or school for the first time is a very important step and can be quite daunting. Therefore if you require any support, please do not hesitate to contact us using the following email address:


We look forward to welcoming you formally to our school. The film below was prepared for our new starters in September 2020, but will tell you a little more about us!

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.
