Most of our children go on to attend Cropthorne with Charlton First School in the next village, but in the past few years children have also gone on to Fladbury, Elmley Castle and St Andrew's in Hampton amongst others. We have an established transition programme with Cropthorne School which sees the Reception teacher, Miss Katy Hughes, and her teaching assistants visiting us regularly in the spring term to get to know the children on familiar territory, followed by weekly visits to the school, with Pre School staff, in the summer term.
Children from the school also visit us – for events like our Christmas play and Easter Duck Race. Many of the children are already familiar with the school as we hold Forest School in the grounds and use the school toilets and outside classroom if necessary!
We are happy to work with other first schools to help children in their transition to big school and welcome visits from their Reception teachers.
