We aim to ensure that children feel secure and familiar with the staff, buildings and routines of the school before they start school with us and links are established with all pre-school settings beyond Holt, prior to children starting school with us. Staff also meet together to discuss individual children’s needs and this helps to ensure that transition from pre-school to school is a smooth one. We have a detailed program of visits that takes place in the summer term, prior to children starting with us. This includes a meeting for parents at the start of the induction program, where there is an opportunity to meet key staff, order uniform, receive an induction pack and ask questions. Following this a program of four to five induction visits takes place.
