Rising 5s – What is it?
In the last term before your child starts school we offer the extra option of Rising 5s sessions on Friday mornings from 8.50am to 12:00pm.
These are held at Blakesley School but are run by the pre-school and are offered exclusively to pre-school children.
In these sessions the children spend time in the Reception class joining in with activities, getting to know the teachers, the children and the school environment.
The sessions really help get the children used to everything at school and make their first days far less daunting.
Moving on to school
Although most children attending the pre-school go onto Blakesley Primary School, any child is welcome and we look forward to meeting children who are going onto other village schools or private schools. At Blakesley pre-school we offer fun and friendship with children and other adults.
Through experience we know that friendships can be maintained successfully even when children move onto different schools. All in all we believe that attending Blakesley pre-school is an excellent start for all children both educationally and socially. We aim to work within a framework which ensures equality of opportunity for all children and families.
