Starting in Reception - Things have been rather different this year so we have put together this video for Reception pupils to hopefully get rid of some worries and welcome them to Reception.
Starting in Reception - books are an excellent way to start a conversation with your child, allowing them to ask questions and talk about school. Here is a useful list of books that are suitable for Reception age children that are all about starting school.
Starting in Year 3 - If your child is joining New Mill Junior School in Year 3 there is an "Introductory Evening" during the summer term where you can find out about the school day, arrangements for lunchtimes, assemblies, etc. You can also meet your child's new class teacher.
Children who attend New Mill Infant School take part in a wide range of transition activities throughout the school year, and particularly in the summer term, to help them move smoothly and confidently from one school to the other.
We are aware that many children have not had the normal opportunities to visit the junior school during the summer term so we put together a video to welcome them...
Open Days - We regularly organise open days for prospective pupils and parents. You can come and have a good look around our school and hear first hand what some of our current pupils think about the school. You can find out when the next open day is by calling the school office. If there is no open day in the near future our office staff will arrange a visit for you.
