As we have no preschool at Ham Dingle, we work closely with parents and preschools to make the transition as smooth as possible. During the summer term, Mrs Matthews completes preschool visits for all of our new intake children. We liaise with preschool staff, pass on information and meet the children.
Parents of new starters will receive information packs in the post in May.
An induction meeting for parents is held in June, giving parents chance to gain more information about life at Ham Dingle and to ask any questions. There is an opportunity for the children to spend some time in school with us before they start and home visits are conducted in July.
