Mereside CE

Starting school

 

Children are invited to visit their class in the half term prior to starting school. These induction sessions provide a gentle introduction to the school, and allow the children to meet their new teacher and other children in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.

Our Foundation Stage Leader and other teachers will also offer an appointment to visit you and your child at home. This will be an informal introduction and hopefully the beginning of a strong partnership between home and school.

Once your child has started school you will be invited to a series of workshops to help you support your child at school.

We shall want to know certain information which will help us care for your child properly. We will ask you for information which will include:

  • name and address
  • telephone number
  • emergency contacts
  • medical details

It is now a requirement of Shropshire schools that we also have sight of your child's birth certificate or adoption forms when they start school.
