'Moments That Matter' meeting for new Reception parents

This year the format to our 'Moments That Matter' meeting changed.  It was a great success.  Thank you to parents and staff who attended.


Moments that Matter.

Meet in the hall as in previous years. Year 1 parents will be there to welcome the parents and give out name labels.

Refreshments will be available for parents.

Move to tables in the hall were HST will welcome parents and introduce staff and clergy.

Facilitators will be at each table to discuss the parents/children’s experiences at the start of school life.

Half of the group will be taken up to the EYFS base where they will be able to see the type of activities the children are able to access throughout the day. The website will be on and staff will show parent how to access the class page and RE curriculum page (if they haven’t already done so). Staff will be on hand to explain the activities and show the parents around the classroom. This will be repeated with the other half of the group.

Gather back together in the hall and answer any queries.

Clergy to speak about the role of parents in the spiritual life of the children etc.
