Transition to Reception

We provide opportunities for all children starting Reception to meet their new teachers and teaching assistants before they begin school in September. During Term 6 the Reception teachers will visit the children who will be in their class to get to know them. The EYFS Leader will also contact children's existing nursery settings to begin the transition process. We also provide Stay 'n' Play and Story time sessions which parents sign up to after our Information Evening event.

The majority of children settle very quickly into school life but if you have any concerns please contact the school.

The children who attend St Katherine's Nursery are used to wearing our uniform, seeing Reception staff and moving around the school regularly so they usually find this transition fairly easy.


All admissions into Primary School are dealt with by the Local Authority and they adhere to specific entry criteria.

Attending St Katherine's Nursery will not guarantee a place in St Katherine's Primary School.
