Year 2 Parents FAQ
I am delighted that your child will be starting at Droxford Junior School on Monday 4th September 2023.
Our staff are committed to working with parents to support and challenge the children to achieve their best. In order to establish an effective partnership the following induction programme has been arranged for you and your child.
Tuesday 13th June 1.15pm – 2.30pm
Fun sports afternoon
Year 2 parents bring their children to Droxford Junior School for a fun sports afternoon. This will help them to become familiar with the school and they will get to know staff and other children as they rotate around different activities. They will need to arrive in their PE kit with a bottle of water. Parents will need to drop their child off at the school reception and collect them at 2.30pm from the quiet area (the central courtyard outside the school hall).
Getting to know the school
Whilst the children are enjoying their activities Year 2 parents will meet the administration team in the hall. They will talk through routines, transport arrangements, school uniform (a dressed mannequin will also be in School) and any questions you may have. Year 6 children will give guided tours during the afternoon. (Parents with children already at Droxford Junior School are most welcome to stay but you may feel you know enough about the school already!) A representative from FODS (Friends of Droxford School) will outline the valuable contribution parents make to the school community.
Wednesday 28th June 6 –7 pm Year 2 Parent’s Curriculum Evening
An overview of the curriculum in school and homework will give you an understanding of what and how your child will be learning. You will have an opportunity to meet the teachers and find out which learning base your child will be working in. A representative from the governing body will outline their role.
On 6/8th June, staff from Droxford Junior School will visit your child’s school (Meonstoke and Newtown Soberton Infant Schools respectively). This will enable them to find out about the children who will be transferring in September. On the evening please inform us of any specific information relating to your child that you feel we should know.
Thursday 6th July 9.15am – 2.30 pm New Learning Base Day
Most Year 6 children will be visiting Swanmore College on this day. This enables all the other children to work in their new learning bases with their teachers. Your child will need to be in their infant school uniform and bring a packed lunch. If you would like your child to have a school dinner please fill in the reply slip below and return to the Droxford school office on or before 23rd May. Please collect them from the quiet area (weather permitting) or hall at 2.30pm.
