Transition Sessions

We hope you are well. As promised in our recent correspondence, we are now in the position to inform you of the transition arrangements for our school starters in September 2022. Thank you for your patience in awaiting this information, whilst we have been planning the safest and smoothest way for the children to begin their school journey. 

We have designed three sessions to make introductions in order to help support your child’s transition into school at Greenways: 

  • A picnic and story opportunity for all children and parents on the school grounds has been scheduled for Tuesday 5th July 2022. More information about this event will be sent to you soon.  To celebrate joining Greenways your child will be given a copy of the storybook that will be read to them to take home and keep.
    • A school introductory visit. This will be a bookable appointment where you and your child can have time in their classroom and meet their teacher, teaching assistant and a member of our Pastoral Support Team (PST). These will take place in the mornings from the week beginning Monday 5th September and a member of the office team will be in touch to book your session. 
    • A taster session for the children in their new classroom. This will be for your child to explore their new environment and spend time with the adults in their classroom. These sessions are scheduled for either the morning or the afternoon on Thursday 8th and Friday 9th September. The times for these sessions will be as follows:

The children’s drop-off time is 9:30am and your collection time will be 12.30pm. You will receive a form to book your session.  

Following these sessions, the children will attend for 2 half days. These will take place in the mornings and will run on Thursday 8th and Friday 9th September 2022. 

We have planned for children to start full time from Monday 12th September. This is subject to change and we will be in contact if this date should change. 

We have begun our nursery transition visits and we very much look forward to meeting you and your child as we welcome you all into our school community.
