Starting School With Us

 Starting Young Stars




If you are a parent considering starting your New Entrant child at St Paul’s please read the general enrolment page.  Once your child has been enrolled you will receive a confirmation letter.  The Junior Syndicate Leader will contact you closer to the time of your child’s enrolment date to organise some transition visits and to answer any questions you might have,  Typically a child new to school will have 2 or 3 transition visits which helps them to start feeling comfortable in their new environment and to know a little more what to expect on their first day.  Children can choose to wear their school uniform to these visits if they want or can come in their everyday clothes.  Parents are welcome to stay for the visit but are also welcome to leave their child until lunchtime once they are confident they have settled.

Following their transition visits a date is made for the first day when your child actually joins the school roll!  Parents are kept informed of happenings in the Junior Learning Space via the class blog and regular emails home.  The Junior team are very happy to discuss your child’s adjustment to school life at any time.
