New entrants FS2 September 2021
Come and meet the team!
We look forward to seeing you if you choose our school.
We are really sorry you cannot come and visit us but school is closed due to lockdown.
On this page we filmed a video showing you around our Reception/ Foundation stage classroom.
Please click on the link below to access the youtube video. This will show you the classroom as it looked last summer. Staffing remains the same as last year so Mrs Miller and Mrs Davies who present the video are still at Coppice Farm. Unfortunately, because of the ongoing restrictions we have not been able to have our usual parents meeting and information session.
We look forward to welcoming you to
our Coppice Farm Family!
Mrs Davies, Mrs Miller and Mrs Meadowcroft
A bit for the parents: We understand that now your minds might be turning to the big event that is happening for you when your child starts school... the start of a new chapter in your child's life. We understand that you may have lots of emotions about your child starting school and this is okay and completely natural. Most parents feel anxious about their child starting school (without a national pandemic looming over our heads), but we are really looking forward to getting your child into our classroom to begin their school journey and want the children to understand that coming to school is a happy and positive part of their lives.
We are continuing to work hard to ensure that our classroom environment is as safe as it can possibly be, whilst still trying to make it a nurturing and welcoming environment for your child to learn in. Please be assured that we are risk-assessing the different areas in our classroom and keeping up to date with the latest government guidance. We will be keeping our environment clean, with extra cleaning taking place throughout the day.
During the first few weeks your child will receive a home school diary, this is to record your child's reading and tricky words but it is also a useful tool to pass messages onto the teachers, as we are very busy at the beginning and end of school and can not always promise to be available to discuss things with you. But if you write a note in the diary and let us know, then we will check it and either write a note back or book an appointment time which is convenient for us to have a chat.
Below is a child friendly booklet to help to support your child's understanding of COVID-19 and why things might be a little different for them.
Starting school is a big step for any child... and parent! Below are some supporting documents to help prepare your child for their new journey. We do not expect you to work over the Summer, but there are plenty of fun ways to help your child be 'school ready'.
