CHILDREN STARTING SCHOOL?
Pupils who are 4 years of age during the academic year are admitted to the school to join the foundation stage on a part time basis.
There are meetings for parents and children before the children transfer into the Foundation 2 class. If a child is transferring from another nursery unit or primary school s/he is welcome to visit with teachers and meet the Head of School.
Parents who wish their child to attend Wath C of E should contact the school to register on the appropriate form for F1 or contact the council for F2.
If parents wish to look round the school, the Head of School will be only too pleased to show them around and answer any questions they may have. It would be helpful if an appointment could be made, especially if parents are keen to visit the Foundation Unit and talk with either Mrs Sandberg, Mrs Horner or Miss Rockett. Please ring our school office on 01709760471 for assistance.
