Starting School at Wincle
If your child is due to start Wincle CE Primary School in the near future, we would all like to warmly welcome you into our school community.
Starting school can be very daunting for a young child, and so we have put together some useful resources which will hopefully help ease any worries you may have.
Starting in Reception:
In the early years, children go through many transitions. Some of these are with their parents/carers such as attending parent and child groups while others involve the child developing their self identity in situations without their parent or carer. Not only does this mean being in a new setting but also contains following a routine, however flexible, which includes moving between activities, changing rooms and being with varying groups of adults and children.
Perhaps the most significant transition is when children enter reception and embark on their formal education experience.
To provide parents with some helpful information and advice, our headteacher Mrs Smith has written an article for parents of reception pupils which can be found here.
