Dear Parents and Carers,

May I take this opportunity to welcome you and your child to West Pennard School.

We hope that this will be an exciting time for parents and children alike but we remain extremely mindful that it may also be an anxious time for you. However, it is true to say that problems are very rare and that we expect your child will settle quickly into the pattern of school life.

I am able to state with absolute confidence that our school has achieved its excellent reputation through its close attention to the pupils' welfare and happiness. In order to be sure that school entry is as smooth as possible we have planned our induction programme carefully, having listened well to parents' concerns, to ensure a relaxed yet cheerful start to full time education.

You will see a number of items that will help introduce you to our school a little better. Please find also a copy of our dates for the remainder of this term that will give you a snapshot of the variety of events which we arrange along with a reminder of the dates of the ‘Stay & Play’ and ‘Getting to Know You’ sessions. You are most welcome to attend anything that may be of interest to you.

You will most probably have already received a prospectus but further copies will be available should you require one. Please browse further on our website to give you more of an insight into the daily life of our school.

I very much look forward to welcoming you and your family to our school.
