Starting in Reception

School Readiness & Welcome Evening's  

We held a very successful ‘School Readiness event on the 13th February 2020 alongside Courthill Infant School and our cluster nurseries.

We focused on how to help your children at home prior to starting school. We had very positive feedback from the evening and we feel it would be beneficial for everyone to have access to the information.
