New Entrants 2024

Dear Parents and Carers, 

I am delighted you have chosen Vigo Primary School as your school of choice.  All new Year R children will join us at the start of term on Wednesday 4th September 2024. Children starting during the academic year will join us on a mutually agreeable date.

For our new Year R starters in September 2024, we will be running some transition sessions in school during the summer term (May - July).  Our Year R team are really looking forward to getting to know you and your child. Details of the transition sessions will be sent to you in a 'Welcome Letter' in April.

All new parents will be issued with a Vigo Primary School New Starter Pack. This contains a school registration form (including information about legal document requirements), and lots of valuable information about our wonderful school.

Please take a few minutes to browse our website to help familiarise yourself with the school.  For ease of information, please find links below to some useful documents for new parents.

Best wishes,

Rachel Dance

Headteacher

Following these events, where we have had a chance to get to know your child and talk to their pre-school settings we will then decide on class grouping.  You will be informed of your child’s new class ahead of their Transition Afternoon, which will be held on Monday 24th June 2024.  Details of this afternoon will be sent to you nearer the time.
