 Induction for New Reception Starters

Once we know your child has been offered a place at Skipton Parish Church of England Primary School, you will receive a letter inviting you meet your child's new teacher. This is arranged during the term before your child starts Reception . At the meeting you will find out more about school routines and see your child's classroom. We invite your child into school for two half-day sessions enabling them to experience some of the activities they will enjoy when they join our school.

In addition, Early Years staff will visit each child in their current setting in order to ensure a smooth transition from nursery to school.
