For children due to start in Foundation Stage in August 2021


We are delighted that you have chosen Hope Hamilton C of E Primary School and are so excited to be able to welcome your child through our gates in late August. Starting school is such an important milestone for any child and their family. It is an exciting time but can also involve a few understandable anxieties too.


At the moment, we are currently living through some uncertain times due to COVID-19. However, we want to reassure you that we will do everything possible to provide the most positive start to Primary School.


Unfortunately, the Transition meetings and induction sessions we usually deliver will not be able to take place this year therefore we have added the pre recorded transition induction meeting to our school website and we are in the process of adding a video of the Foundation Stage Area and parts of the school. You will also be receiving a letter informing you about a First steps to Foundation Stage session which we are holding in school in the next few weeks and an Induction Pack with more information about the school.


In the meantime, you may want to look at some of the useful links and resources below to help prepare your child for starting school.


We can't wait to meet you all!


Kind Regards
