Into Reception

Transition for your child joining Reception

To enable a smooth transition for your child we offer Rising 5’s sessions in the Summer Term prior to them joining Mead Road School.  These sessions allow your child to become familiar with our school surroundings and staff. 

During one of these sessions we will hold a parent meeting to discuss school readiness and expectations for September.  At the Rising 5’s sessions we will also offer you a home visit appointment that will take place in September.  This allows the Reception Teacher and Teaching Assistant to get to know you and your child in a familiar setting.

At the parent meeting we will inform you of the starting school arrangements.  In order to help your child settle as quickly as possible into school life we gradually build up to full time.
