At Tadcaster Primary Academy, we understand that starting school is a very exciting time for your child, and also for you. We also recognise that alongside this, you will have many questions, and even perhaps some concerns, around what starting school will look like for your child. We value building positive working relationships with our new starter parents/carers from the outset, to ensure that transition into our school is as smooth and worry free as possible.
Our school has the most wonderful staff who are completely committed to ensuring that your child is safe, happy and feels well supported; we equally care that our parents/carers feel well supported also, at this important milestone in your child’s life.
Staff take pride in getting to know each child individually, really well, and take the time to understand interests and character, so that the children can be best supported to enjoy their learning in addition to achieving well.
Specific needs where there are any, be they around emotions or ability, are identified early with bespoke plans put in place to meet these needs. This is always in consultation with parents/carers.
At all times, communication with parents/carers is clear and proactive, and we operate an open door policy. You will always find it easy to access the information and support that you need, from caring and supportive staff.
From the moment your child is allocated a place at our school, we will be in touch with useful information and as their start date draws closer, you and your child will be invited to attend transition visits. You will also be welcome to get in touch with us at any time, via email or a telephone call, with any questions or chat to anything through. We encourage parents/carers to make an appointment to visit the school and have a tour with the Headteacher, this is great opportunity to see our wonderful school in action and ask any questions you may have.
