Dunchurch Infant School & Nursery

Reception Intake 2017

Now that offers of places have been accepted, we recently distributed our admissions packs (on Friday 9 June).  If you have not received yours, please contact the School Office asap on 01788 810292 or email office@dunchurchinfants.co.uk.  When completed, please return the forms to the School Office at your earliest convenience; thank you.

So that you can learn a little more about us, you are invited to a meeting in school on Wednesday 28 June, 6.30pm – 7.30pm in the School Hall.  At the meeting, you will find out which class your child is in, meet the teachers and have the opportunity to look around the Reception unit.  We will discuss with you how we can work together to settle your child into school. Our PTA will be holding a meeting immediately following this to explain how they help support the school and you are more than welcome to join them.

In order to make starting school a happy and positive experience, we have arranged an optional session in the Reception unit for children who do not currently attend our Nursery. This will be on Monday 3 July 1.30 pm – 2.45pm (you are welcome to stay with your child if you wish).  For current Nursery children moving up to Reception, our Nursery and Reception staff have arranged a series of short visits for  the children so that they may become familiar with the unit.  The children will be taken to their new classrooms during their normal Nursery sessions.   

Furthermore, Tuesday 11 July is County Transfer Day and gives each child the opportunity to spend time in their new class with their new teacher.   However, if your child does not normally attend our Nursery at any time on a Tuesday, please do bring them along for the afternoon session (12.15pm) and they will be taken by the Nursery staff into the Reception class.   

In due course, you will be given a time to come into school to meet the teachers and Teaching Assistants while your child will be able to play with other children.  This will be on the morning or afternoon of either Monday 4, Tuesday 5, Wednesday 6 or Thursday 7 of September.  During this time you will have the opportunity to discuss with the teacher your child’s needs and interests. 

On the morning of Friday 8 September, all Reception children will be in school from 8.45 – 11.45am and will start with us full time on Monday 11 September.
