New Starters - What to Expect

Every child’s start to school life is a vitally important period. At Haydon Wick, we do everything we can to make it a smooth, happy, and positive experience. Our early years team place a strong focus on assisting children with the transition from home to school life.

For our new Reception children starting in September, we offer some visits for storytime and a morning and afternoon visit in July to help with transition into our school. We hold an information evening for parents in July where you can meet your new child's teacher and visit the classroom they will be in.
