Starting School

Ash Class is the foundation 2 class in school and the first class that children attend, they are 4-5 years old.

Most of our children attend the Bottesford Pre-School Playgroup.  This is an Outstanding (OFSTED) playgroup which is situated next door to Belvoir High School. We have excellent links with them and we work closely in order to ensure a smooth transition into school for all our children.

The children have weekly visits to school, with the pre-school staff, from Easter onwards.

At the beginning of the Autumn term, so that our children have a happy and nuturing start to school life we offer

  • A home visit (for families who would like one)
  • 1 week of morning sessions
  • 1 week of afternoon sessions
  • Then everyone all day by the third full week of term.

This allows all children to get used to their new environment and routine in a happy and settled way!
