New Starters for Reception Information
Welcome to St Giles Primary. We are looking forward to welcoming you and your child into the St Giles Primary family. We understand that starting school is an exciting time for both children and parents, but can be a little daunting too! We have put together some useful information and tips to help support you and your child with starting school, and to help make the transition fun and as smooth as possible. We hope you find the information useful.
Ready for School.
Here you will find some useful leaflets and information from Derbyshire County Council to help your child get ready for starting school.
Here are copies of important letters regarding starting school in September.
As soon as your child starts at St Giles Primary School they will begin their phonics journey with us. Phonics is how we teach early reading and you will get further information about this in the autumn term. Your child may already complete some phonics activities at nursery or pre–school and the following information and activities have been developed to help build on that and create a firm foundation for phonics. By completing these activities little and often you can really support your child with their early phonics and give them a good foundation for learning to read.
