OPEN DAYS FOR PROSPECTIVE PARENTS

Prospective parents are welcome to our Open Days in November.  Please join us on either 1 November 2017 at 9.30-10.45 am or 9 November 2017 at 1.45-3.00 pm when you will have an opportunity to take a look around school.  We will tell you a little about life at Bournville Infant School and we will be joined by our colleagues from Bournville Junior school with an opportunity to walk round the Junior school also.  There will be plenty of opportunity for you to ask questions either Infant or Junior related.

Look forward to welcoming you to our schools.

OUR INDUCTION PROCESS

We provide a comprehensive induction programme for children starting school in September. Children and parents are offered a range of activities which allow them to become familiar with school and it’s learning environment.
INDUCTION AFTERNOONS
In June we hold induction afternoons for each of the three classes. Children and parents are invited into school, in the afternoon, to meet their teachers for the very first time. We provide a range of fun activities for the children to do and then they visit their new classrooms where a surprise awaits! Mrs Pemble chats to parents about the new school year and provides an introduction into life at Bournville Infant School. Children receive their very own booklet telling them all about learning and having fun at Bournville Infant School.
ASSEMBLY
Again children and parents are invited to visit school to participate in an assembly. The current Recpetion classes will be there to share with the new children a story and a song.
HOME VISITS
Teachers and the Teaching Assistants visit each child prior to them starting school in September. This provides an opportunity to get to know the children in a familiar setting and have a discussion with parents. Children and families will also be set the challenge of creating a scrapbook about their family. This could include photographs, pictures and writing. These scrapbooks will enable us to provide a curriculum which is matched to the needs and interests of the children.
