Pre-School & Pips

Pre-School & PIPS (Parents in Partnership with School)


Our Induction Group - PIPS


PIPS is available for children to attend during the summer term prior to their full time admittance into the school. It is run by three volunteers, all mothers of children who have attended our school.  PIPS provides valuable play experiences and helps the children to feel more confident and comfortable in the school surroundings. They will meet their class teacher and have opportunities to visit their classroom and make friends with the other children. We offer three sessions at PIPS plus a whole morning with the child's new teachers in their classroom. This morning is usually in July.

The group meet on a Tuesday afternoon or a Thursday afternoon

You will be allocated a place on either a Tuesday or a Thursday. You will receive an information pack about this during the Summer term before your child starts school.

Westdale Pre-School is run in the unit attached to our school. It is a voluntary run Pre-School with a high reputation. It shares this unit with Woodpeckers (our out of school club).
