New Intakes

Where learning is fuelled by creativity

Be part of something…

Where everyone is welcome

Nurturing talents, encouraging voices and embracing difference. We make sure that everybody is included, supported, valued and free to be themselves. In our community, everyone belongs.

Where learning is fuelled by creativity

Exciting topics, real-world adventures, the great outdoors and our wider community – we use all these and more to inspire curiosity and wonder. We build the confidence to ask questions, challenge ourselves, use initiative and become eager to seek out more.

Where great things happen

Small steps, fantastic feats and extraordinary efforts. Individual and shared. Sporting, musical, academic or social. Whatever shape or size, we encourage and celebrate all successes with passion and pride.

Preparing to join us in September 2019

We can’t wait to welcome new children to our reception classes this September!

GENERAL INFORMATION 2019/20 Reception

Starting school is a really big part of any child’s and parent’s life and we want to make the experience as smooth as possible for you both. We have made changes to our usual induction period, taking on feedback from previous years.

Mrs Sue Brown will be teaching Blisland Class and Mrs Heather Beckett will be teaching Bedruthan Class.

Our induction period starts right now … and finishes when your child is settled. We have broken it down into easy steps to follow!

Step 1: It is really important for us to gather as much information as possible about your child before they start with us in September. Please can we ask you to telephone the School on 01872 263322 as soon as you receive this letter and provide us with the name of the pre-school setting which they currently attend. This will allow us to contact each setting to arrange a visit to meet your child and/or the professionals they work with.

Step 2: Induction Meeting 1 – Wednesday 12th June, 7pm in the school hall.

This meeting is for parents/carers only. The meeting will include general information about our school: uniform, lunches, the remaining induction period, funding, timetable of the day etc. This will also include a time to sign up for a ‘Getting to know you’ meeting with the two Reception teachers, Mrs Brown and Mrs Beckett. Both teachers will attend all meetings.

Step 3: Monday  24th June throughout the day, and other days after the school day.

Come and meet Mrs Brown and Mrs Beckett! In these meetings, it is an opportunity to share information about your child: what they enjoy doing, what they find tricky, what their self-care skills are like, any potential areas we need to know about. This is also a time to share any information about additional needs and family set ups. We can’t wait to meet you

Step 4: Induction Meeting 2 – Monday 1st July, 7pm in the school hall.

This meeting will include what you are able to do to prepare your child for starting school, how to support your child at home with their learning and how important the partnership between home and school is.

Step 5: ‘Stay and Play’ day 1 – Wednesday 3rd July 10:00 – 11.15

On this first session, parents/carers are welcome to join your child by visiting the classroom – no younger siblings please! You will be welcomed and come into the Reception classes by the side door and once you have seen your child settle and start playing (after about 15 mins) you are very welcome to join other parents in the hall for a cup of tea! On this day (Step 6!) parents of Blisland are welcome to stay after this session and Share our lunch together.

‘Stay and Play’ day 2 – Thursday 4th July 10:00 – 11.15

Now that you know the routine and what the classrooms are like, in this session the children will line up outside on the front playground, in the same way they will in September, and after a cheerful wave goodbye, will go into the classroom with school staff. On this day (Step 6!) parents of Bedruthan are welcome to stay after this session and Share our lunch together.

Mrs Brown and Mrs Beckett will be available on both of the afternoons of the ‘Stay and Play’ days, in their classrooms, if you would like to drop in and chat about anything further about your child starting school.

Step 6: There is a chance for you to come and experience our lunchtime routine and sample a school dinner with your child on either 3rd July (Blisland) or 4th July (Bedruthan). An adult lunch will cost £3.75 and a child’s lunch will cost £2.35, only for this visit. From September in Reception and Key Stage 1, hot school lunches are provided, funded by the Government.

Step 7:Starting school!

Our aim to is get children settled in school as soon as possible, ensuring that they are feeling safe and secure.
