PAREnts Presentation

We are delighted to share with you our presentation below which provides further detail about what your child will experience when joining Penguins in September. This information is usually presented to parents at our Parents Meeting in June.

The government guidance has changed since recording this video, therefore the Wednesday sessions and nursery visits referred to will sadly not go ahead. We will be in touch with your child's nursery school teachers before September to learn as much as possible about your child.  The Parents Coffee Morning and PTA talk planned for Thursday, 10th September has unfortunately been cancelled.

We want to assure you that we consider the transition process to be very important and we will be looking for opportunities and solutions to ensure the children feel confident and excited about this new phase of their educational journey.

We are constantly adapting our approach under the challenge of the situation we find ourselves in.  We are currently looking at ways to introduce life in Penguins to your children, possibly developing our use of video further and we have not ruled out the possibility of visits in August.  Watch this space!
