    Starting School

    Home




    OUR AIMS ARE AS FOLLOWS:


    At Ballaquayle every effort is made to make children feel happy and secure when they start school. Our present Induction programme has proved successful for children, parents and Reception staff alike.


    The programme is as follows:

    • Year round opportunity each Friday afternoon to join Ballaquayle Bears toddler group in the school hall.
    • An evening meeting for parents to visit school, meet staff and receive information.
    • Reception staff meet your child in their pre-school setting.
    • You and your child are invited to spend half a day during the month of June with the present Reception class teachers.
    • A return visit to Reception for your child in July.
    • An invitation to join the school Sports Day.
    • For the first 2 weeks of the autumn term when you child starts school, he/she will attend for half days only, mornings or afternoons in week one and vice versa in week two.

    This part-time intake enables your child to become familiar with routines and expectations in a small group situation, helping your child to settle well into school. Furthermore, during this period we are able to find out more about your child as an individual. Starting school is one of the most important experiences of a child’s life. It is a step into a new world with new people to meet and different routines to learn.
