New Starters 2022-23

Welcome to our 2022 children and families



We are delighted to welcome our 2022 intake to Woodthorpe Infant School. We are looking forward to getting to know all of you, and we hope you enjoy being part of our school community. In the next couple of weeks, you will receive an information pack from school providing some details about us, and requesting some from you. Please return these at your earliest convenience to allow us to start preparing for September. Please also follow this link to fill in our online new starters' information form. This will allow you to let us know a bit more about your child including who their friends are, which will help us to allocate them to their classes. 


Over the next few weeks Miss Tyler will be contacting your children's nurseries to find out a bit more about them, so please make sure that your child's nursery is aware that they will be moving to Woodthorpe Infant School.


A few dates for your diaries:


Wednesday 15th June - New Parents' Meeting at 6pm - Meet Mr Hopkinson and the Foundation team. This will take place in the school hall and parents can choose to attend in person, or we will also offer the option to join online. As this is an information meeting this is for parents/ carers only. 


Thursday 30th June AM - First visit to school - Parents/ carers to stay with their child. Children will be given a 1 hour slot during the morning to attend.

Wednesday 6th July Am - Second visit to school - Parents/ carers to bring their child into class, stay to settle and then leave the children if you/ they feel comfortable. Again children will be offered a 1 hour slot.


Monday 11th July PM - Final visit to school - Parents/ carers to bring their child in, settle them briefly and then leave the children. This will also be a 1 hour slot.


Monday 18th July (class 1) and Thursday 21st July (class 2) - The opportunity to have a 15 minute 1:1 Microsoft Teams meeting with your child's teacher, to help us get to know you and your child better.


We hope that all of these events will help you and your child to feel comfortable with their transition to school, and we look forward to working together to ensure that they have a wonderful start to their school experience. Please keep your eye on this page as we will be updating it over the next few weeks with information that will help you and your child to get to know a bit more about us.
