Hyde Church of England Primary School

Starting School

We know that starting school is a big step and we try to make it as easy and enjoyable as possible.

Once your child has been offered a place at Hyde School, there will be opportunities for you to spend time in school together.  During the summer term preceding the academic year in which your child is due to start school, you and your child will be invited to a series of induction sessions. Our induction programme is designed to help your child feel confident about starting school and to ensure that we all know what to expect: We hold a series of meetings and activities for parents and children and liaise closely with pre-schools so that we get to know your child as well as we can before they join our school family.

During one of these visits your child will meet their ‘Buddy’, a pupil from Class 3, our Upper Junior class. Buddies do a wonderful job of helping our new reception children settle into school, especially at playtimes and lunchtimes as well as by supporting them at school events.
