Once you have accepted your place at Knaphill we are able to start our in depth Induction Programme. This is designed to take the worries and concerns out of the move to “Big School” for both parent and child.
There is an Year 2 parent induction meeting in November where you will have chance to meet the Federation Headteacher, Miss Concannon, and the Deputy Headteacher, Miss Daly, and be taken on a tour of the school by the Year 6 House Prefects.
You will receive a letter to say that your child will be offered a place at Knaphill School and there will be details of the transition morning where you and your child can visit the school. Your child will be asked by their Infant teacher to list a group of friends they would like to transfer to Knaphill with. If you would like input to this, please contact your Infant School. This information, along with teacher input, is given to Knaphill and is used alongside academic information, and the teachers’ professional judgment to make up classes. You will also receive an admissions pack which needs to be competed an sent back to the Junior School office.
Knaphill teachers meet their new pupils at their Infant Schools with their Year 6 buddy. If your child is absent on this date, please call the school office to rearrange a visit to Knaphill for you.
Induction Day! Children will come and spend a morning at Knaphill at the beginning of July and meet their new class teacher. They should wear their existing school uniform and parents are invited in to meet the Leadership team and for a presentation by the Head of Year 3. There will also be a chance to look around the school with your child’s new Year 6 buddy.
Arrival time is 09.00 – children will walk up with their Year 2 teachers and shown to their classrooms.
Children return to the lower School at 12.00 with their Year 2 teachers.
There is an opportunity to meet the class teachers and ask them about the curriculum for the term of any other questions you might have.
We hope that this is useful to get you started. There is a huge amount of information to be found elsewhere on the website – if you need any further help please email firstname.lastname@example.org
