New Starters - What to Expect
Children will be invited to attend a series of visits to the reception class before they start on a daily basis.
Prior to these visits, and admission to the school, the class teacher will make a home visit, during which parents will have an opportunity to talk to the teacher, fill in the necessary forms, and receive a brochure.
Every child’s start to school life is a vitally important period. At Drove, we do everything we can to make it a smooth, happy, and positive experience. Our early years team place a strong focus on assisting children with the transition from home to school life.

I am delighted the progress my child made in his year in Reception. He thoroughly enjoys school, learning and experiencing new things. Many thanks for your excellent teaching and supporting my son.
My child enjoyed every moment when she was in Reception. She became confident, independent and learned lots of new things. The most important thing is that my child was happy to go to school and she still is.
We have been very impressed by the team within Reception. Everyone is so kind and welcoming. Thank you for making our daughter's first experience at school so positive.
