September 2024 starters

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 2024 New Starter Meeting

We will be holding our New Starter meeting on Monday 10th June at 6:30pm.  This will be in the reception classroom 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 25th June or Wednesday 26th June when you will be able to attend with your child.  The organisation will be as follows:

Group 1 Tuesday 25th June 9:30am - 10:30am

Group 2 Tuesday 25th June 1:30pm - 2:30pm

Group 3 Wednesday 26th June 9:30am - 10:30am

Group 4 Wednesday 26th June 1:30pm - 2:30pm


The second visit is for your child on their own.  They will be on Thursday 4th 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 Mrs Dixon (teaching assistant).  These will be held on either Monday 2nd September or Tuesday 3rd September.  You will be able to book the date and time when you attend the New Starter Meeting in June.

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 Wednesday 4th September 2024

Group 2 Thursday 5th September 2024

Group 3 Friday 6th September 2024

Group 4 Monday 9th September 2024

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.
