Transition into Nursery and Reception classes will be a little different this year. Given the difficulties brought about by the coronavirus, we will not be having our usual parents meeting and stay and play events for you to come into school.
Below are details of what will happen this year for Nursery and Reception. Please contact our school office if you have any questions about your place in Nursery / Reception or about what you need to do next.
You can contact our school admissions officer, Ms J Clays in our school office or our EYFS Lead Mrs T Johnson. Call school on 0151 477 8630 if you would like to speak to us.
Please be assured that we will do everything that we can to ensure that you and your child have a happy and safe start to school and settle well.
