In the Spring/Summer Term, parents of children due to start school the following September are invited into school for an informal meeting to get to know some of the staff. They are encouraged to come and talk to us if they have any concerns or feel their child has any specific or special needs.

Close liaison between the Pre-School staff and our Reception staff ensures a smooth transition for the children when the time comes to start school. We also produce a “Welcome Brochure” for parents with ideas for games and ways to help the children settle into the school routine.

We follow the Dorset LA admissions policy which states that all new Reception children are to attend full time in the autumn term. For more information about how to apply for a place at our school, whether your child will be starting in September or joining us part way through a school year, please visit the Dorset LA School Admissions website or call them on 01305 221060.
