To our new children and families,
A very warm welcome to Etchells Primary!
We hope that you and your families are well. We are so pleased that you have chosen to come to our school and we can’t wait to meet you all. We strive to offer children and their families an enjoyable start to their time with us. Starting Nursery and Reception is a big step in a young child’s life, and we aim to make the transition as smooth as possible.
Usually during the summer term we start our transition by inviting you to a new parents’ information evening and your child to several visits to school. Unfortunately, in the interests of social distancing, we are unable to arrange visits or our parents’ meeting at this time. In the meantime, we are trying to make the transition to school as supportive as possible, and still provide you with all the information you need.
We have put together a starting pack containing parent information and documents to be completed which you should have received. There is a transition booklet all about school to share with your child, it can also be found in the files below. Please look through this with your child during the summer so that they become familiar with our setting. We have put a video tour of our classrooms and other areas so that you can see all the wonderful and exciting places you get to play and learn in. There is a video tour of our school to share with your child on the right of this page.
We look forward to meeting you soon and will share more information regarding starting school as soon as we have it.
Kind regards and keep well
The Early Years Team
