New Starters 2022-2023 Information


Open Morning - Tuesday 24th May 2022 (9.15am to 11.15am)

We are delighted that you have made the choice to send your child to Knaresborough St John's in September 2022!  We cannot wait for your child to start with us!  Before then, we would love you to come in and see our school, meet some of our Yr6 children and head into our EYFS classrooms so you can see what it looks like to be in our youngest classes.  This will also give you the chance to meet some of the staff that currently work in EYFS and ask any questions that you currently have.  Mr Hope will also be around to answer any other questions.  See you soon!


Open Evening for Parents - Tuesday 28th June 2022 (6pm to 7pm)

After two years of remote Open Evenings we are so pleased to be able to invite you into school this year.  The Open Evening will allow you to hear from some of the key members of staff that will be involved in your child's first year at school.  This will include Mr Hope (Headteacher), Mrs Richardson (Deputy Headteacher and EYFS Teacher), Mr Bedford (Deputy Headteacher), Mrs Scott (EYFS Teacher) and Mrs Camplejohn (EYFS Teacher).  You will hear about the school's expectations, routines and ways that you can support your child before their first day.

If you are unable to make the Open Evening presentation, then please do not worry.  The presentation will be uploaded onto this page after the evening.


Nursery/ Preschool Visits - Throughout June 2022

After half term, the EYFS team visit our local nurseries, pre-schools and child minders. This gives us the opportunity to see your child in their current setting, how they interact with other children and what they enjoy doing. We also meet with the staff, who pass over any important infomation about your child. 


Transition Day - Thursday 7th July 2022 (9.30am to 11.00am or 1.00pm - 2.30pm)

The children will be invited into school to spend a morning or afternoon session in their EYFS classroom with their new teachers. This is a wonderful opportunity for the us to get to know your child a little better and allow them to become familiar with their new setting, adults and make some new friends. We will let you know which session your child is invited to on 28th June at the open evening. 


Home Visits - Week beginning 11th July 2022

We have found that home visits are such a valuble part of your child's transition into school. A chance for the Early Years staff to meet you in person and for you to ask us any questions you may have about your child starting school. A sign up sheet will available on the open evening for you to book a visit. We are really looking forward to meeting you all.
