Stories to help transition to school.

Mrs Norman has been sharing these books with her son who will be starting Reception this year.  She has kindly reviewed each one to help you select suitable texts for your child ahead of

starting school.

Welcome to Parents/Carers and new starters.


Welcome and thank you for making Park View Primary School your choice for your child’s early education and beyond.


This page will serve to keep you informed ahead of your child starting with us in September.  


Please also refer to any school documentation the school sends you or contact the office directly should you have any queries.


By now, you should have received/collected your transition booklet to share with your nursery or reception child along with the appointment date and time for you both to meet your child’s teacher. Please contact us if you haven’t got one.


May we also invite you to join our EYFS Facebook page for this academic year (see the link below).


We look forward to meeting you and your child soon.

Due to the social distancing restrictions currently in place, we have been unable to host our parent information evening this year.  As an alternative, we are in the final stages of recording audio to go along with the presentation we would normally provide.  We shall send a link to all new reception parents once this is finalised and uploaded.
