Barnes Farm Infant School

Building Futures, Inspiring Success


Liaison with Preschools/Nurseries

We do our very best to communicate with all Preschools and Nurseries before your child starts with us.  If at all possible, we will visit them in their setting so that they become familiar with staff and will also invite local Preschools and Nurseries to attend sessions at school to support transition.


We will issue each child with a transition book before they start with us so that they can look at pictures of the staff that will be supporting them and of areas around the school.


We will also ask all parent/carers to complete an 'All About Me' booklet with their child so that we can get the children before they join us.


We are very much hoping to offer our usual programme of transition in the summer term, which will include information about the primary school - Barnes Farm Primary School.

Below is an example of the types of transition events that we hope to offer:


Stay and Play sessions in small groups to get to know the staff and setting

Teddy Bear Picnic Story and Song sessions with local preschools

Tours and talks for parent/carers

Open Evening for parent/carers and children to view the school and experience everyday life at BFIS

Preschool and Nursery visits

Mace Playce School Event - Owlets Wellbeing Team staff to attend to meet parent/carers
