Growing Together in God

New Intake Information


Welcome to the Parochial C of E School family

We are very much looking forward to meeting you and your child in the coming months.

Our EYFS Team

Over the Summer, have a look at the things you can practise to become 'School Ready!'

At Parochial, we are proud to use Read Write Inc phonics to support our pupil's learning. You could be getting used to the phonics sounds using the video below...

Tapestry is an online learning journal where you can access and view all of your child’s observations, photographs and even videos from their time at Nursery or Reception. This will enable you to follow your child’s individual progress closely and you can reflect upon achievements with your child. You can add comments so that we as a staff find out about which activities your child really enjoyed and the learning they get up to at home. Staff will reference your child’s learning to the EYFS profile so you will know which area of learning your child is achieving in and the age-band they were working in for that activity. You will also be able to add your own observations from home for the EYFS staff to see and talk about with your child.

We can't wait to show you the world of Tapestry in our Tapestry Workshops in September. To find out more in the meantime, click on the picture above!
