I would like to thank you for choosing Holden Lane Primary School as your child begins their education.
Due to the current Covid-19 restrictions, it has been necessary to change our usual Foundation Stage Induction arrangements. However, in order to provide you with a range of useful information to support your child as they begin their school journey, we have compiled an ‘Welcome Pack’ on our school website.
Please access the Parents section, then click on Foundation Stage Induction Welcome Pack, to find a short film to introduce the staff and setting, the Foundation Stage Prospectus and a presentation to outline what you can expect from us as a school. This includes an explanation of our curriculum and how we will help your child to have a great start to their education.
Enclosed with this letter, you will find all of the important documents that we require in order to admit your child in September 2020. Please complete these forms and return them in the stamped addressed envelope provided by Monday 13th July 2020. If you need help completing any of the forms, please contact the school office.
All parents are required to complete the Parental Declaration form for your 15 hours Free Early Years Education, however, if you are entitled to the 30 hours free funding, please ensure that you obtain your eligibility code from https://www.gov.uk/help-with-childcare-costs/free-childcare-and-education-for-2-to-4-year-olds
Furthermore, we would like to invite you into school during the first week of September 2020. The purpose of this visit is to provide an opportunity for you and your child to meet our Foundation Stage staff in the classroom setting. Please see the letter enclosed with the arrangements for your child. Please bring your child’s birth certificate when you attend the school for this first visit.
We believe that all children are entitled to a high quality education and should regard their school as a safe, exciting and enjoyable place to be. We strive for every person involved in our school to feel valued and special so that every day, they feel they have achieved success. We very much look forward to working with you to achieve this for your child.
Miss C Thomas
