New starters

Welcome Parents of New Puffins and Sparrows


Early Years Foundation Stage Induction Presentation with Mrs Cartwright, Acting Headteacher

We would normally be able to invite you in to share this presentation with you as a part of your induction experience. As this is not possible currently, we hope that you will find this recorded presentation both helpful and informative as you prepare for your child to start with us in September at Keep Hatch.

Your Induction Pack is now in the post (on 25th June) and should therefore be with you very soon. As stated in this presentation and in your Induction Pack, we request that you personally return all your completed paperwork to the school office by Friday 3rd July when we can hand you your child’s ‘Getting Ready for School’ holiday pack.

After watching the presentation and reading your Induction Pack, if you have any further questions, these can be addressed when you either return you paperwork or when you receive your telephone call from your child’s class teacher.


Hello New Puffins and Sparrows


Meet the staff in Puffins and Sparrows


Dear Parents/Carers,

A big and very warm hello to our new Keep Hatch families from the Foundation Stage Team! We are so excited that you are going to be joining us in September. Unfortunately, you cannot come in to school to meet us all yet so we have made a video for you so that you can see your new classroom and meet some of the teachers at Keep Hatch. As you can see, there are lots of exciting and interesting activities waiting for you such as construction, sand, water, small world, painting and lots more. We know that we are going to enjoy learning together and we cannot wait to meet you very soon.

Look out for more videos and information in the coming weeks.

Best wishes,
The Foundation Stage Team
