WELCOME TO ST THOMAS'

SEPTEMBER 2024

We are so pleased that your child will be joining us this year!

We are looking forward to getting to know our new children and their families too.  Starting school is an exciting time and we will do everything we can to ensure that your child gets the best possible start in school and feels settled and reassured as they start school with us.

 We will start to get to know those children who are joining our school from St Thomas' Nursery over the summer term, as they join us in the school hall for their lunches each day.  In addition to this, to help all our new starters settle in to school, we have arranged a number of sessions when they can come and spend time in their new classroom.  They can meet the staff and the other children, who will soon become their new friends, and the parents can start to make connections with each other and with our school and the staff team. Mrs Mason and Miss Cunningham can't wait to welcome the children and families in! If your child attends St Thomas' Nursery, the staff are usually happy to bring your child along to any of these sessions, if they are attending Nursery on these dates and times .  We will send out some information and a questionnaire by email to all our new parents & carers to help us start getting to know you and your child.  Mrs Mason will also make arrangements to visit your child and meet them in their current Nursery or other setting where they are very comfortable and settled. This usually happens during June.

The first full day at school will be Wednesday 5th September 2024.  We will have a staggered start on that first day to help children arrive happily and be welcomed by our staff.  After their first day, the children will be in school full time as we find that this is more helpful for the children - and for many parents too. 

We are looking forward to welcoming you all into our school family.
