Starting School

Starting school is an exciting time for you and your child. We hope the information below will help in preparing you for this new chapter.

 

For children starting school in September 2022 there are two transition afternoons: Tuesday 21st June and Tuesday 28th June from 1.30pm until 2.45pm. There is also a New Starters meeting for parents which is being held on Wednesday 15th June at 5.00pm in school. At this meeting we will arrange to visit you and your child at home later in the summer term. These visits have proved invaluable in helping children to settle happily and quickly into school.  

If you would like further information please do not hesitate to contact the school office or email Mrs Jo Taylor our Early Years Coordinator: jtaylor@st-giles-matock.derbyshire.sch.uk
