Bourne Primary School


Joining Bourne in Reception

Once you have applied for your place and had your place confirmed at Bourne Primary School you will be invited to attend a ‘New to Nursery / Reception’ parent meeting, usually held in June. This year it is June 25th 2019 at 6pm.

In this meeting you will get to meet the Class Teachers and Nursery Nurses working with your children. You will find out which class your child will be in and also have a chance to sign up for your home visit for the September.


Children that are new to Bourne will be visited in their home by the Class Teacher ad Nursery Nurse working with them. This gives us and you a chance to get to know the staff and find out more about your child.

All children enter school on a full time basis. We stagger the start into Reception in order to make the transition easier for the children. This gives the youngest children time on their own in their new surroundings. Summer born children come in for 2 days and then the Spring born children join them for two days and then finally the older children, Autumn born children join with their class.
