Transition into Reception
We ensure that the transition from Nursery to Reception is as easy as possible for our children at Coteford. From the very beginning they will have been involved in the school community, taking part in whole school celebrations at various times throughout the year. During the Summer term Our oldest nursery children have opportunities to visit their classroom and class teacher before they start in Reception. The Class Teacher attends Nursery sessions to get to know the children. Children who are new to the School also have opportunities to visit their new classroom and Teacher. Reception Staff work closely with Nursery Staff, Previous Settings and Parents to make sure transition into Reception goes as smoothly as possible for all Children. The children start in Reception on a part time basis for the first three weeks of term.
