A Flying Start to Success

Nursery and Reception Starters - September 2021

Welcome to Throston Primary School. On this page you will be able to access all the latest news/guidance ahead of your child starting Nursery or Reception this September. Unfortunately, due to the pandemic we have had to adapt our usual transition arrangements. Instead we will keep you posted via this web-page.


In the interim, if you have a question, no matter how big or small, please just e-mail us at: admin@throstonschool.org.uk or phone the school office (01429) 288291. I will then add the questions and answers to this webpage.

 

We cannot wait to give your child a 'Flying Start to Success'.

 

Stay Safe, Mr. Atkinson (Head Teacher).

Update: 22/04/2021
At present we have two transition days planned, these are: Monday 12th July 2021 and Tuesday 13th July 2021. It will be on these two days that we will invite those new to our school to visit. Those new to Reception will have school lunches on these days - there will be no charge.

We have uploaded new starter forms that can be completed prior to our transition days.  If you have any questions about the forms, please do not hesitate to contact the school office (01429) 288291, admin@throstonschool.org.uk. Thank you!

Update: 18/06/2021
Unfortunately due to the recent announcement from the Prime Minister we are having to adapt our transition arrangements. We are really sorry to do this, but must ensure we follow national COVID-19 guidelines.


New to Throston (Nursery Starters)
Visit times will remain the same. However, visiting children will now not have the opportunity to mix with other children. New parents and new Nursery children will meet our Nursery teacher in a section of our outdoor Early Years environment. There will also be an opportunity to tour the school on Thursday 15th July 2021. Please e-mail admin@throstonschool.org.uk if you wish to have a tour. Tours will take place from 3.45pm to 5.00pm.
