New Starters

Parent Information

Starting school is a milestone, not just for your child but also for you. You may be excited about this step or feel a little apprehensive as your child takes their first steps towards independence. 


At Parson Cross CE Primary School we aim to build a good relationship between home and school so that everyone involved can ensure that your child gets the very best from their time with us. 


Please do not hesitate to contact the school office should you require any further information. Miss Ruel will be able to answer your questions or point you in the right direction. 




Calendar of Events for September 2020 Starters


As schools are currently not open to all pupils, our usual transition arrangements have not yet been confirmed. However, below is a guide to what you can expect from us before your child starts their education here. As soon as we have more information regarding schools re-opening we will update this information. Rest assured though, we will make sure that both you and your child are fully prepared to join us. Welcome to our school family.


 1 - New Parents/carers welcome meeting


At this meeting you will have the opportunity to meet the Headteacher, Reception class teacher and other members of the school staff. We will be sharing information about what your child will need to start school, as well as gathering information from parents to ensure that transition is as smooth as possible for your children. Please bring your diary to this event as you will be asked to sign up for home visits and school workshops. 


2- Pre-school liaison

During the summer term, our Reception staff will liaise with your child's current setting and find out key information to ensure that we make their start to school as smooth as possible.


3- Home call

Your child's class teacher will call you at home and introduce themselves. This call is an opportunity to share any individual concerns or needs which you may have.


4- Transition mornings for children

Prior to starting with us,  children will be able to experience a morning in Reception and meet their new classmates and staff. 


September 2020 - Starting school- a gentle start


We know from experience that  our newest children find the first week of school exhausting.


At Parson Cross CE Primary we start the first week with Reception children attending part time. Children start school at the normal time of 8.40am and stay for lunch. They are then ready to be collected at 1.15pm.
