Starting School at Marden Lodge

Transition – Starting School at Marden Lodge

Starting school is an exciting opportunity, for you and your child. At Marden Lodge it is important to us that we work in partnership with you, from the beginning, to ensure that we all feel ready and comfortable when September arrives. We aim for children to become confident and happy learners as quickly as possible when they transfer to Marden Lodge Primary School, so we have put together the following information and guidance to support families during this transition period.

We hope to answer all your questions, but do please contact us via the school office, telephone or email, if there is anything else we can help you with.

Visiting the school

There will be opportunities for your child to visit us, so that they meet their teacher, and start to become familiar with the classroom and surroundings. On the first visit, we invite you to accompany your child to visit in a small group. On the second visit all the children are invited giving an opportunity to “meet the class” On both occasions they will have a taster of some of the learning activities.

Caterham Children’s Centre also hold Family Fun Days which you are invited to attend.
