To help you find out a little bit more about our school values, and how you can prepare your child to start school, we have created a video with some helpful hints and tips. Please also take a look at our School Readiness leaflet which explains these too.

Even if you have older children who are already at school, you may have questions about lots of different aspects of starting school. Please send us an email at eyfs2020@fernfirst.dorset.sch.uk and we will do our best to answer your questions.

The people who know the most are our fabulous children, so if you or your child would like to ask them a question, please email those in too and one of our current Reception children will be happy to answer it!

We are working hard to plan the best possible transition for your children, to ensure that they will be safe, happy and excited about the start of their journey with us. We will update you about specific dates and plans as soon as we are able to.

Thank you to all our new families who are understanding of the changes to our normal transition process in the current circumstances.

Take care and we look forward to welcoming you all to our Ferndown First School family soon!
