Welcome to the EYFS Intake Page for September 2021!

We are delighted that you have chosen St Clare's and we welcome you to our school community. We look forward to being part of your child’s important first steps in learning and to working closely with you during your child’s educational journey at St Clare's.

We are really sorry that we aren't able to meet you all in person this year. As we can't meet, we have created this webpage to share important details with you in order to aid transition at this very difficult time. 

Despite this being very different to what we usually do at this time of year, we are none the less, very excited to welcome our new children and families to our school community. This page is aimed to provide you with as much information as possible and hopefully make you feel less isolated from us. 

We are very aware that you may be anxious about your child starting school and want to remind you that this is very normal. Our children are often a lot more resilient and adaptable than we give them credit for! We are working hard to ensure that you and your child are fully supported at every step of their transition into school.

Please ensure you have collected your pack from the School Office and return the completed information as soon as possible. If you have any questions about the documents in your pack, please contact our admin team on 0161 740 4993. 

Our EYFS Team are very excited to meet you all and will work extremely hard to continue to support you through this difficult transition period.

If you are new to St Clare's, then your child's teacher will be contacting you in the next few weeks to introduce themselves and find out key information about your child. 

If you have any questions, please contact your child's new teacher on 0161 740 4993 or contact them via email.
