Starting School

Your child’s first year at The Laurels Primary school is an extension and development of their pre-school experience and the final year of the foundation stage. This means a strong emphasis on learning through fun and play, with a careful, gradual progression towards more formal lessons.

Our Reception classroom has been designed especially for our younger children. It is larger than the older classrooms, allowing more space for a variety of different activities. The children have their own cloakroom, toilets and a partially covered, well-equipped outside learning area to continue their learning both inside and out.

This year, due to the global pandemic, we have created a virtual transition meeting. Below is the presentation, with all the relevant information you may need.
