New Starters 2020

New Starters of 2020-2021



We are so pleased to hear that you have chosen our school and that your child will be joining us from August this year. We know that this is a very exciting time for children and parents alike and we very much look forward to meeting you all.

Next year the class teachers will be Mrs Jo Nelmes (4 days) and Mrs Sarah Corner (1 day).

As I’m sure you are aware transition may have to be a little different this year, but we will not let that stop us from ensuring your child makes the perfect start to their time with us at Great Dalby. We are currently in the process of sending you and your child a welcome pack full of information about this and would be welcoming of any questions you have to the addresses below.

To assist with your child transitioning into our school, this section of the website will contain lots of tools that you can share with your child, to allow them to become more familiar with our teachers and our school.

We have also attached lots of lovely ideas and activities that have been published by our Multi Academy Trust. These documents also give guidance on how you can support your child, in the home learning environment, to help with school readiness.

If you do have any questions, please feel free to make contact using the email address

Take care and stay safe

Best wishes


The Class 1 Team
