Welcome to all our new children and families and welcome back to our returners. I hope you enjoyed your summer holidays. The children are settling in well, making new friends, getting to know their key person and exploring their new environment.

We also appreciate your support during this time of induction. This has been carefully planned and thought out so that it is in the best interests of all children. Over the course of the next few weeks we will be settling in many new children to the school. It is important that the children feel safe and secure and that staff can build relationships with individual children and families. The purpose of children coming gradually is so that children can have more individualised attention and that the transition is handled sensitively. You visiting with your child is a really important part of this process as children will settle more quickly when they see you interacting within the environment. If you have any concerns about how your child is settling then please talk to your child’s key person, Mr Holmes or Miss Draper.

Please could you ensure you bring your child’s birth certificate when you visit for your child’s induction.
