New Intake September 2020

Please note that we have recently emailed all parents of our new intake children (children due to start in September 2020).  If you haven't yet received your email, please check your spam/junk folder.  If you are still unable to access it, please contact the school office to check that we have the correct contact details.  A copy of the email is attached below for your reference.

Welcome to Battling Brook!

Dear Parents/Carers

As you know, your child is due to join Battling Brook as part of our new intake, with effect from September 2020.  To welcome you to our school we would typically invite parents/carers of prospective pupils to attend an evening induction meeting.  We have therefore provisionally arranged this for Monday 22nd June 2020 at 6.30pm – adults only to attend wherever possible please (no younger siblings).  Please note that times/dates may have to change due to Covid-19 restrictions.

The meeting will provide an opportunity for parents to meet their child’s class teacher as well as other members of the Foundation Stage Department, Senior Management and the School’s Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO).  We hope that you will be able to attend the meeting.

Further information will be sent shortly relating to arranging visits for teachers to meet you and your child at your home (to take place at the end August/early September*), as well as a letter inviting your child to enjoy an induction day during the final half of this term.

To ensure that the school has up to date information and to accept your place, please complete the electronic form found in this email and submit it as soon as possible (by Friday 1st May at the latest). This information is vital and will be used to support your child’s transition, allowing the teachers to allocate classes, and enabling them to get to know him/her more quickly.  A copy of your child’s full birth certificate will also need to be provided to the school at either the June meeting or when your child first visits.

Thank you for your help and support.  We look forward to meeting you.


*Please note that the start date for Reception classes will therefore differ from the date published for existing pupils, and will be confirmed as soon as possible.
