Transition to EYFS

Transition to EYFS

We are delighted that you have expressed an interest in your child joining us at Holy Rosary RC Primary School. We would like to take the time to welcome you and your family  to our Holy Rosary family.  


Over the next few months, lots of decisions and plans will be put in to place to ensure that your child’s transition to Holy Rosary RC Primary School  is  as smooth as possible. We want to reassure you that we will assist you in any way we can to ensure all children arrive for their first day at Holy Rosary excited and prepared.  We will be working closely with nurseries and families  over the next few months to ensure that this transition is as seamless as possible for our new starters in 2024.


Due to current restrictions, we will be running our transition events virtually.  We will send a letter with more information about our transition activities and events in due course.
