Prospective Parents


Foundation Stage - Reception

During the Autumn term, the school holds an open evening and walk-rounds for prospective parents and families for the following September reception intake. These sessions allow parents and carers to meet with the Executive Headteacher- Mrs Briggs, the Head of School - Mrs Wilding and the Senior Leadership Team and to look around the school. It also enables families to listen to the vision and ethos of Great Sankey Primary and visit classrooms. The tour of the school is led by our House and Vice Captains from Year 6 to allow parents to get a holistic view of Great Sankey Primary.

Parents must then follow the school's admission policy procedures should you wish for your child to attend Great Sankey Primary. Once a place is offered in the Spring term, pupils and parents are invited back into school to meet with the staff. Early Years staff will also make contact to visit your child in their nursery or pre-school setting or at home during Summer term. These meetings then inform our class structures ready for September.

During June / July, the children are invited into school to experience a morning or afternoon session with their class teacher and new friends. In September, further transition is built in where the children will attend school part-time for either morning or afternoon sessions. Throughout this period, staff liaise with families to ensure a smooth and happy transition. In addition to this, we hold a further parent meeting in October as well as parents' evenings throughout the year and Stay and Play sessions where you are invited into your child's classroom to watch your child learning.
