If you are offered a place here at Wesley, please contact school to accept the place. Our induction process begins at this point. Your child will be invited to attend school for two afternoon sessions in June and there is also a parents' meeting for 'school readiness'. The aim of the meeting is to present you with information about our school and give you the opportunity to ask questions.

There is also the opportunity for a home visit where we can meet you and your child in your home setting. This is a time when you can ask any further questions you may have about starting school.
