News: Common Transfer Day

Next week the children will be given the opportunity to visit the classes they will be in from September and meet their new teachers. Throughout the week we have various activities planned and on Thursday 30th June (Common Transfer Day) the children will be spending the whole day in their new class. 

We would like all Nursery children to attend school for the whole day (9am to 3pm) on Thursday 30th June, when they will be spending the day with Mrs Cartwright and Miss Squire in Reception. This will include having lunch, so the children will either need to bring a packed lunch or a hot meal can be booked in advance using Parent Pay. 

Children should be dropped off and collected at their usual classes. 

Morning Nursery should be dropped off at the Nursery class and collected from the Treasure Chest Door (Front yard marked Girls)
Afternoon Nursery should be dropped off the Treasure Chest Door (Front Yard marked Girls) and collected from the Nursery Class. 

Those Year 6 children who will be transitioning to Castell Alun in September, will spend time throughout the week developing skills in preparation for secondary school. Their opportunity to visit Castell Alun is on Thursday 7th July.  Children off to Darland or St Christopher’s should have received information about their visits on 30th June already – please contact school if you have not had this. 

Classes have once again been arranged in consultation with the children and we have ensured that they all have at least one friend in the class with them. We know the change can be quite daunting for some children (and parents) but please don’t worry, our fabulous staff will be on hand to support the children and reassure them. 

Many thanks,

Mrs Billington
