September 2018 Starters
For parents/carers of children who will be joining South Lake in September 2018
We look forward to welcoming you and your child to South Lake in September.
We do not find out which families will be joining us until the end of May. At that point our Reception teachers will be in contact with your child’s current setting to talk to practitioners about your child, find out their likes/dislikes and any friendship groups and any other relevant information that will enable your child to have a smooth transition. This information will help us to balance our classes appropriately.
You will be invited to one of our ‘Welcome to Reception’ afternoons on either Tuesday 3rd July or Thursday 5th July. You will receive a communication regarding this during week commencing 18th June.
At this meeting your child will visit their new classroom and meet the teachers and support staff who will be working with them in September. They will be shown around the classroom and all the different activities.
While the children are in class, you will receive an informal talk and receive an information pack. You will also be given your child’s start date. Start dates are spread across the first two school weeks in September so that we have a small number of new children at a time having their first day at school.
