STOKE INDUCTION POLICY
Our aim is to make every child’s start at Stoke Primary School as happy and relaxed as possible.
Children will be admitted into school in September, in the school year in which they are five.
The Stoke transition programme for Reception children enables all children to start on the first day of term in September.
1. Parents Information Evening - held early in the summer term
2. A sequence of three classroom afternoon sessions to enable the children to get to know their new class environment.
3. Transition week - held for all year groups including reception class. For Reception Class the weeks timetable is as follows:
Monday - morning only
Tuesday - morning only
Wednesday - morning and a school dinner
Thursday - All day, including a school dinner
Friday - all day including a school dinner
Years 1 to 6
Following the Admissions meeting children transferring from other schools will be carefully integrated into the appropriate year group using the Stoke Mobility Pathway.
The Mobility Pathway is designed to ensure the right level of support for each individual child to secure the best start top learning at Stoke.
Our aim is that every new member of staff, new parent and new child will be made to feel welcome and given assistance to enable them to become aware of our aims, policies and organisation. We will meet this aim by induction programmes appropriate to the position.
