Reception Cohort 2018-19
A warm welcome to all those new families who are set to join us in September 2018. We are about to embark on an exciting journey together. By now you should have received a letter of introduction from the school and a goodie pack with all of the information we require from you before your child joins us in September.
Our new intake meetings are taking place on Wednesday 13th June at 6pm with a repeat on Thursday 14th June at 2pm. It is extremely important that you or a family representative attends this meeting as you will find out more about the next stage of induction. Where possible we advise that the children do not attend as this is very much aimed at parents.
We look forward to seeing you soon and ask that you return the required paperwork as soon as possible to enable us to make arrangements for your child.

Infant to Junior Transfer
Year 2 pupils are no longer automatically allocated a place at their adjoining junior school. Please read the information below carefully and ensure that you apply for a junior school place for your child by 15th January.
The law now requires you to apply for a place at the linked junior school.
The School Admissions Team have produced a booklet that will guide you through the process, you can read and download this via www.havering.gov.uk/admissions/Juniorbooklet.
Please ensure that you complete your application before the deadline of 15 January 2018. Failure to apply could mean that your child cannot transfer to the linked junior school.
The law states that first priority for school places must be given to Looked After Children and Previously Looked After Children. In Havering all community (and majority of academy) junior schools give second priority to pupils transferring from the linked infant school. If you are applying for a junior academy you are advised to check the admissions criteria before applying.
If you do have any concerns or would like to discuss this further please feel free to contact the School Admissions Team via firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 01708 434600 between 12-5pm Monday to Friday.
