Transition 2020

As we can't have our usual transition time in school, here is a page where you can get to know a bit about your new teacher for September 2020!

Below is a booklet with some activities you can complete if you want something to do over summer! You can bring anything you do into school in September to share with your new teacher. 

If your child is feeling particularly anxious about the return to school or has additional needs, please see the SEND page for some additional advice and resources you can access. 

Meet the Teachers!
