Reception - School Ready!
We welcome children to Maple Walk when they are 4-years-old. All new Reception children are invited to the school to spend an afternoon with us, during the summer term prior to starting. This is an excellent opportunity to meet their new teacher and to orientate themselves with their class. We hope they may make some new friends too, so that there is a familiar face on their first day of school.
Our staff try to visit as many local nurseries as possible and we have good links with a range of settings. There are a number of ways you can help support your child as they transition from nursery to primary school. For a few ideas, read our article.
