New Starters September 2022
We are delighted you have accepted the offer of a place for your child at St Mary’s RC Primary School and Pre school in Osbaldeston for September 2022 and we warmly welcome you to our thriving school community.
We would like to invite parents to our Pre School & Reception Welcome Evening on Wednesday the 8th June at 6pm. You will meet some of our staff, go through some of our school routines and expectations. This evening will also give parents the chance to meet the other parents.
We know you may have many questions about your child starting school in September and we hope we will be able to answer these for you. Miss Pinn will give everyone a pack at the event with some paperwork as well as activities and resources for you to work with your children on before they start at school in September.
We have arranged a number of transition sessions after the evening, with the first being on Monday 20th June where we are inviting parents to stay and play with the children in their new setting from 1.30pm to 3pm.
If you are unable to stay and your child is happy for you to leave them that is also fine.
There will be 2 further transition afternoons where we would like children to attend on their own on Thursday 23rd June 1.30-3pm and Thursday 30th June 1.30 – 3pm.
Any questions about these sessions will be answered at the welcome evening.
The school term starts on Tuesday 6th September when children will attend the agreed
pre-school days and Reception children will attend full time 8.45 am – 3.15 pm.
We look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to our St Mary’s family,
You are also welcome to look at some pictures and videos to watch with your children to introduce them to their new class teachers and to help them to see what our EYFS unit is like.
We will use this page to keep in touch and keep you updated.
We have also attached some pictures of staff in school so your children can familiarise themselves with faces they will see when you join us.
