In order to ensure a smooth transition for your child starting school in September, we will be having staggered sessions for their first few weeks of the term. This reduces the number of children in the class initially so that it is less overwhelming for them and makes things, such as the first time to the dinner hall, better for them. The children will be split into two groups depending on their date of birth, called 'younger' or 'older', for these staggered start sessions. If your child is born before 1st March 2019, they are our 'older' children. Children born on or after 1st March, 2019 are our 'younger' children.
