Transition into EYFS
A warm welcome to Samuel Ryder Academy
The Transition into the Early Years Foundation Stage is a landmark event for children and can have a huge impact on their social, emotional and academic development. At Samuel Ryder Academy, we value the importance of working collaboratively with children, practitioners and families to aid smooth and successful transitions into our school.
Please find below information regarding this year's transition process including a welcome video for students and families that has been put together by the EYFS team. In this video you will be able to meet the EYFS team, find out all about life at Samuel Ryder Academy and listen to a story read by Mrs Pereira.
We look forward to welcoming you to the Samuel Ryder Academy school community in September.
