Transition Process into The Rowan Tree

Transitioning into Rowan Tree Annexe:

Pre September:

  • Your child’s new teacher from Rowan Tree Annexe will visit your child in their nursery setting and speak to their Key person. The teacher will gather important information about your child to ease their transition into their new school.

  • Open Evening – where you will meet your child’s staff team, see their classroom and discuss any questions that you might have. The open evening is also a great opportunity for you to share important information about your child with their new class staff.

  • A number of visits for your child to visit their new class in Rowan Tree Annexe. We have found in the past that it is beneficial for their nursery Key Worker to accompany them for the first few visits. The numbers and length of visits would depend on the needs of the individual child.

  • New Family Welcome & Information Booklet:

  • New Pupil Welcome Booklet (Your child’s booklet will be more individualised to them and their class)



  • Details of class timetable.

  • Curriculum Overview.

  • Transition Questionnaire – what you felt went well and if there was anything we could do make it better.

  • Regular contact with class team.

  • Home - school Diary



Family Involvement:

At Rowan Park School and Rowan Tree annexe we also want to give families the opportunities to share the wonderful work and activities that you do with your child at home.

We send home:

  • ‘Magic Moments Books’ – a way to share and celebrate all the wonderful things your child does at home. We leave it entirely up to you how you want to present your book. Activities could be related to IEP targets or just what you have all been up to for fun.

  • Class Mascot with different pupil each weekend.
