Information for Year R families before starting in September


Welcome on behalf of Gatcombe Park Primary School to all of our families with children starting in September.


On this page you will find a few pieces of information to hopefully support you preparing your child over the summer holidays. Other information will of course still come to you via more traditional postal methods, including dates and times for our home visits where you and your child will get an opportunity to meet the Year R staff and talk in more detail about the exciting first days and weeks of school.


On this page you will find some photographs of the school so that you and your child can begin to make yourselves familiar with the new surroundings. We have also included an electronic copy of the summer challenge booklet which we ask you to complete with your child before the home visit. It is full of fun ideas and things to do that will help us know more about your child before they start with us.


We have also included a brief introduction from the Year R team so that your child will recognise a friendly face when they start!


We very much look forward to welcoming you and your child in September and beginning our primary school journey together.
