Transition Arrangements & Arranging a visit

At Greenways, we understand what a big event it is to send your child to school for the first time, especially if they have not been in a nursery setting before. So we do everything that we can to ensure the transition process is relaxed, positive and offers you with the assurance that you need that Greenways Primary is the right place for your child.

EYFS Prospective Parents Evening

In order for you to see our setting, in the autumn term, we host an opening evening for prospective parents who are looking for a Reception place the following September. You are welcome to come along, meet the team, see the setting and get a feel for our school. We encourage parents to bring their child to this session.

Summer Welcome to New Parents & Home Visits

Once school places have been allocated, we then host a further open evening session where we welcome new families to Greenways and learn more about your child. 

During the summer term, we then carry out home visits or nursery visits which allows our staff to get to know you more, your child’s likes and interests and offer a familiar, friendly face for when they start school in September. We also offer new Reception children the opportunity to attend our two transition days. This is when Nursery children move into Reception for two days to start familiarising themselves with their new classroom and new friends.

Arranging a visit

Parents looking for a Nursery place are welcome to come and visit us at any time to see the setting during the day or after school hours. 

Please contact our office to arrange your visit.
