We have lots of opportunities for the children to visit school throughout the year to aid their transition into school. If your child attends one of the pre-schools in the village, information will be passed to you through the pre-school.

Bright Start Club for pre-schoolers
We hope that by introducing the children to the school, the environment and the types of activities that they will be involved in when they start school in September, it will aid the children’s transition to school and help them to settle quickly.
We know that starting school can be daunting for both children and parents. At St. Mary’s we know that a happy child is a child who is ready to learn and thrive.
The club will help the children to familiarise themselves with the setting, understand some of the routines that they will be engaged in in school, and practise some of the early skills that children will build upon once in school.
At Bright Start, there are a range of practical, play based activities for the children to explore. The activities will be planned around the seven areas of learning in the Early Years Foundation Stage.
Initially, if as parents/ carers, you would like to stay to ensure that your child is happy, confident and settled, you are most welcome. We envisage that as time progresses that you can leave your children with us for the duration. As this is a special time for pre-schoolers, we do ask that you make alternative arrangements for siblings and that they do not attend.
If your child has any medical needs that we need to be aware of please let us know. If you would like further information, please do contact us
