Lowther Reception Settling in Timetable
At Lowther we want to make the transition into school as smooth as possible. We believe that the best way to settle your children into school life is to stagger their entry over a three week period. This has worked very well for the children in the past as it allows them to feel happy and comfortable at school without becoming over tired and overwhelmed. Below is a timetable which details this process. Please note that the timings and requirements for each day vary so please do read carefully. At the Reception Information meeting in July we explained more regarding your 'Home visit' and 'Meet the Teacher' times and the details regarding whether your child is in group 1, 2 or 3.
