Welcome to West Monkton
We are so pleased that your child will be joining us in the new intake for 2020!
Due to the current situation, inevitably a lot has changed since you applied for your child's school place. I think it's fair to say that none of us could have predicted that we would be in this situation.
At this time, we have had to make many different changes to the way in which the school is operating. As you will notice, this isn't our School website but we are very fortunate to have staff members within our Trust Schools who have been working behind the scenes to set up a virtual school. This is a hub where lots of information is provided for all children across the three schools and it also offers information for pre-school and new intake. Due to these changes in systems, it also means that transition will have to change. Although we don't know how long we are expected to work in this way, we will keep you to to date with developments as they happen.
In a normal transition, we would invite you and your children into school for stay and play sessions and have a new parents information evening. 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 West Monkton before they start school.
As well as the information on our Virtual School Pre-School pages, we have a new email address for you to contact us on 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.
