New Starters 2023 -2024

Is your child starting out at Thurlbear in September 2023? These last years have seen lots of changes in schools around the country, which have left families feeling quite unsure in some areas. Miss Kelloway – Foundation Stage Leader at our school – has created a set of resources for those families who need this information. Although it is a presentation from 2020, it will still give you an insight into the Foundation Stage Class. She has also put in useful links to learning opportunities. We also use Tapestry as an excellent parental engagement tool, which will immerse families in the day to day living and learning of Chestnut Class in 2023 -2024.

Mr Gillan – Head – has also created a presentation about our school. This will give you a flavour of what we are all about.


If you have any other questions at all, don’t hesitate to contact the school Office Team on and they will always help. ​
