When returning the completed form they should bring the relevant birth certificate to verify the date of birth.
In the summer term before your child starts school you will be invited to meet the Reception Class Teacher. This will be your opportunity to discuss with the teacher any worries you may have or to pass on any necessary information that you think we ought to know.
We also invite your child to attend school for either a morning or afternoon session during this term so that they may experience and become familiar with school life.
