We Love, Learn and Succeed
Following Jesus


Starting at St Basil's

We know that starting school can be an exciting time for families.

We strongly encourage and welcome visits to school so that we can:

  • Get to know and understand each child and their individual needs
  • Establish a relationship with parent/carer and wider family
  • Liase with previous settings and schools to ensure a smooth transition

Early Years

When children start in our Early Years we:

  • Contact parents/carers to confirm the placement
  • Liase with current setting iand discuss needs
  • Meet the child and family on a home visit
  • Invite the child and their parent/carer to stay and play sessions
  • Invite the child to story visits
  • Invite parents/carers to a short information evening
  • Hold teacher and parent/carer consultation meeting 
  • Short phased part entry - usually one week

Moving on to High School

Preparing to move on to high school is a significant and emotional step for children and their families. 

We prepare children for high school by:

  • Working with the different high schools pastoral staff and designated safeguarding leads
  • Facilitate visits by high school staff to meet the children
  • Liase with the different high schools around school visits. For Halton schools this is usually two days in July
