We maintain links with the playgroups in Bollington and the local high schools.
The Reception Teacher and Assistant visit the playgroups in order to become "familiar faces" before the children see them in school. We endeavour to create as happy and natural a beginning to this new stage in your child’s life as possible.
We have developed close links with the secondary sector schools to which our children move on after Year 6. Tytherington High school, being the main receiving school, provides a carefully planned liaison programme which enables the children to visit the school, and also allows their staff to visit our school for teaching sessions.
