September 2021 Robins
Welcome to the Newchurch Family.
At Newchurch we believe that having a smooth transition into school plays a vital role in your child’s education and well-being. If your child feels happy and secure, they will learn and flourish in their new environment.
September 2021 New Starter Meeting
If the COVID roadmap goes according to plan, we are hoping to hold our meeting on Thursday 27th May at 6:30pm. This will be in the school hall and parents are welcome to attend the meeting to gain valuable information about the transition of your child into Newchurch.
Visits to School
The children will be organised into four consistent groups which will attend school for some taster sessions prior to September. You will be informed shortly of the group your child is in.
The first of the visits will take place on either Tuesday 29th June or Wednesday 30th June when you will be able to attend with your child. The organisation will be as follows:
Group 1 Tuesday 29th June 9:30am - 10:30am
Group 2 Tuesday 29th June 1:30pm - 2:30pm
Group 3 Wednesday 30th June 9:30am - 10:30am
Group 4 Wednesday 30th June 1:30pm - 2:30pm
The second visit is for your child on their own. They will be on Thursday 8th July as this is the day when all our children move up to their new classes for the day. The organisation will be as follows:
Group 1 and Group 2 9:30am - 11:30am
Group 3 and Group 4 1:00pm - 3:00pm
Starting School in September
Prior to your child starting school, you will have the opportunity to have a one-to-one parental conference with Mrs Sizer (class teacher) and Miss Sullivan (teaching assistant). These will be held on either Friday 3rd September or Monday 6th September. You will be able to book the date and time when you attend the New Starter Meeting in May.
To further aid transition, there is then a staggered start to the groups starting school. Once the children start school, they are in full time. The start dates are as follows:
Group 1 Tuesday 7th September 2021
Group 2 Wednesday 8th September 2021
Group 3 Thursday 9th September 2021
Group 4 Friday 10th September 2021
This is an exciting time for you and your child but it can also be a period of apprehension. Please be assured that we are here to support you in any way we can - you are part of the family now.
We have our own wrap around care which is available to you should you need to make use of it. The welcome and information pack is below. You can book your place now if you want to.
