This relaxed session will be based on the school field. Bring a picnic and a blanket along to enjoy the sunshine. This is a great opportunity for the children from different settings to meet and for parents to get to know each other and perhaps arrange some playdates for the summer!!

We offer all families the chance to speak to us in confidence and strongly encourage you to arrange a visit (bookable at the Parent’s Welcome Evening). This is a great opportunity for you to chat with your child’s teacher about any worries – no matter how big or small! Children will be given their first school reading bag.
