Transforming lives by living and learning together in God's love

New Starters Information 2024

We want to wish you all a very warm welcome to St Margaret's Church of England Primary School.


As we look forward to getting to know our new families joining our school community, and as we begin our transition activities for this year. We will use this page as a hub to hold all of the information that you need as you prepare for September and your children starting school. Some of you will already have children in our school and so will be familiar with some of the information about the school, but for some of you this will be the beginning of your journey at St Margaret's. We hope that, whichever the case, you will find this page informative and helpful.

Please rest assured that we have a robust transition in place.



Important dates


Welcome meeting: Tuesday 4th June @ 6pm.  All parents are encouraged to attend.  This meeting will give you all the information you will need for your child's transition to school in September.


Transition meetings: Friday 14th June or Monday 17th June. These are 10 minute meetings with Miss Elsdon in school. If you were not able to attend the New Starters Meeting, please phone the school office and book an appointment.  A sign up sheet will be available at the Welcome Meeting.


Classes: You will be sent an email on Friday 21st June to inform you which class your child will be in - either Penguin or Puffin Class


Induction Morning: Thursday 27th June 9.30 - 11.30 a.m

Please bring your child to the Cobbold Street entrance to gain entry to the playground. This is a 'stay and play' session, an opportunity for you and your child to meet the Early Year's staff and familiarise yourselves with the setting. We can only allow one adult to stay with a child, thank you.


Storytime sessions: Please sign up for a story session on either Friday 5th July or Tuesday 9th July. Both these sessions will run from 2.30 - 3.00 pm. You are welcome to stay with your child or if they are happy to, your child can attend independently.

If you were not able to attend the New Starters Meeting, please phone the school office and book an appointment.
