Starting School 

If your child starts school next September then please do come and visit our reception class and meet the Early Years Team. We have regular Open Mornings and would be happy to show you around our school. Contact the office on 01694 722682 to book a visit.

Once you have secured a place for your child at St Lawrence Primary School you will receive an induction pack and an invitation to join our Discovery Sessions during the summer term. Our Discovery Sessions are an opportunity for children to spend time in their new classroom and make some new friends before they start. We often visit the local nurseries and childcare facilities to get to know children and see them in a familiar setting. Let us know where your child has been to nursery and we’ll make the link.

We want to develop a strong partnership with parents from the start so please do talk to us about your child, ask questions and share any concerns. If you would like to come in and help with reading, join us on local visits or have time to spare please let us know. Parents are welcome in the classroom to settle children in each morning. Once children feel happy and confident they are encouraged to be more independent and will want to hang up their own coats and book bags.
