Early Years New Intake Induction

Welcome to Westlands. We are looking forward to building relationships with families and welcoming you and your child to Westlands Community Primary School. We will endeavour to keep you updated with progress on transitions and important information that would usually be provided in parent – teacher meetings via this page. 

At the heart of Westlands Community Primary School is a shared love of learning and discovery. We want children and adults alike to be inspired, challenged and excited as they gain a deeper understanding of the world around them and find answers to their questions. We want all our children to leave Westlands as resourceful, responsible, resilient young people taking with them many marvellous memories and a desire to follow their dreams.
 
It is our intention that the videos, documents and tour available from our Website allow our newest students and their families to familiarise yourselves with our teachers, site and routines.

Video induction and welcome

We are preparing for your child to join us in September and realise it is difficult at present for us to offer the usual transition into Westlands. We have thought deeply about questions you may have and important information we can share with you. Mrs Gaskin (Head Teacher) and Miss Jones (Early Years Leader) have prepared some simple videos covering the topics which are usually shared at a “New to Early Years’ Parent meeting” which will give you an introduction to Westlands School life.

 

We are providing you with information about a typical school day, resources children need, ideas to help prepare your child for school through answering frequently asked questions.

 To help your child in the build up to September 2020 we have created a tour of the Reception classrooms and outdoor area. We hope this gives you and your child a feel for our school.
