Welcome to Blackbrook!
We are so pleased that your child will be joining us in the new intake for 2020.
Due to the current pandemic, so much has changed in the last few weeks and when you were applying for your child’s school place we would never have anticipated schools being closed when you got your offer of a place.
At this time, we have had to make so many changes within our school systems and we will also need to make changes to our transition process for our new intake. As I write this, nobody is sure how long we will be in this situation so we will endeavour to keep you up-to-date with developments as they happen.
In a normal transition, we would visit all children in their current pre-school setting, invite you into school for stay and play sessions and offer home-visits. We are now busy adapting our practices to support initial communications and online interactions and also planning ahead to when schools do re-open.
Please do not worry as we will make sure there are opportunities for your children to meet the staff, visit the environment and familiarise themselves with Blackbrook before they start school properly.
As well as the information on our Virtual School Pre-School pages, we have a new email address for you to contact us and this will allow you to ask us anything you need to know directly: firstname.lastname@example.org
We hope these actions will help ease any concerns you have about the current situation in relation to your child starting school. We will continue to work as hard as we can to allow for a smooth transition for your children.
Please keep checking these pages, and your emails, for updates.
