EYFS Induction 2020

Starting school is a very special and exciting time for our new children and their families. We also recognise that this can also be a very anxious time too. At St Francis, we provide as much care and support as necessary to ease every child into their new environment. To help prepare your children, in such an unprecedented situation, we have created an induction video which will be uploaded very soon. This will introduce your children to their new teachers, it gives a tour of the school and includes the Nursery and Reception classrooms and the outdoor environment. We also give you some top tips in helping to prepare your children for September. We hope you enjoy it. 


In the mean time, you will find information regarding school uniform, the school lunch menu and parent pay under the 'Parents' tab. We hope you find these links useful.


If you wish to contact a member of the EYFS team before September then please feel free to send us an email at . We will respond to you as soon as we can. 


We look forward to seeing you all very soon! smiley





EYFS Induction 2020

Covid-19 Amendments 

Due to Covid-19 some of our usual practices have changed slightly from what you will hear about in this video, some of these are detailed below. We will keep our whole school community updated as and when more changes occur. 


  • Our arrivals and collections procedure will be different. We will be asking you to use our one-way system established at our Teazel Avenue entrance and handing over/collecting your child to/from their teacher at the playground. 
  • There will be no whole school gathering Collective Worship sessions in our hall. Instead, these will be done via video streamed to the classroom.
  • Our lunch times will be staggered to avoid congestion in our dining hall. 
  • Anybody using part-time or flexi-care will be contacted separately about specific arrangements.
