Starting School

Children are introduced to the school in the year before they start as full-time pupils. They are invited to attend school for 1 Afternoon or day per week with a parent or carer during the summer term. in these Sessions the children get to know all the other children, the staff, the layout of the school and become familiar with some of the school routines.

Children generally start school in September. If parents have a particular concern, arrangements can be made for half day attendance and delay starting until January, or somewhere in between the two, until confidence and maturity have grown.

On entry the children join the Reception stage of the Infant class , progressing later through years 1 and 2. The infant class is taught by Mrs Amanda Roberts, with some Advanced Teaching Assistant support.

The infant classroom is part of our fabulous extension and provides the infants with the light , airy and spacious room with far reaching views across Carleton and other local areas. The extension also contains a computer suite , extensive library , outside canopy and quiet activity area.
