Freshford Preschool is approximately 300 metres from Freshford Primary School and we have established close links with the school.
A transition programme is in place to support those children who progress to Freshford Primary School, and we also plan joint activities with the Infant classes at other points during the year. In term 6, we welcome the Freshford Reception class teacher into preschool to discuss our children's progress and ongoing development needs.
Where children progress to other primary schools, we liaise to establish a personal transition plan and invite their Reception class teachers to come and observe and interact with the child.
For all children, we provide a transition report for their new school, with a copy provided to parents. This report covers the child's most recent learning and development achievements and includes their recommended next steps.
