Early Years New Starters

Welcome to St. Bernadette’s Catholic Primary Voluntary Academy. If you have clicked on this tab, it is probably because your child is joining us as part of the Early Years Unit (Nursery or Reception) at St. Bernadette’s very soon.

Please find below a series of documents that will help prepare your child for starting at our academy. Please carefully read through the ‘Notes for Parents’ section in the appropriate New Parents’ Booklet as it holds vital information that you will need as part of your child’s transition process.

The final link is an invitation to our annual Strawberry Tea event which is taking place on Friday 1st July. We would love for you to join us for an afternoon of fun, games and lots of sweet treats! This would be a further opportunity for your child to be welcomed into the St. Bernadette’s family.
