Wavendon Gate School


New Parents - all you need to know....


A warm welcome to

Wavendon Gate School

from the Early Years Team


Hello my name is Mrs Houghton, I am phase leader for Foundation Stage and Year 1. The Early Years Team and I are so looking forward to meeting you all, at a distance, when your child joins us in September. I will be phoning you during the coming week to gain some information about your child and share our current plans for next year. I will then contact Nurseries and Pre-Schools for transition information and the Early Years Team will start building classes for September. If you have any questions, following our phone conversation, please phone the school or you can contact me by email:

I believe that every question is an important one! 



For those of you interested, below is a link to a webinar,

delivered by Happy Minds, it addresses some issues you may be worried about during your child's transition into school.
