Before starting Stalyhill
Once the Local Authority has notified you that your child has been allocated a place in our Reception class, you will receive correspondence from us asking you to confirm that you are accepting the place.
During the Summer term before your child is due to start, we hold a number of welcome events for you and your child to get to know our school.
Please see the admissions page for more information regarding starting school.
Children enter our Reception class having previously attended a number of different feeder nurseries. We do not have a nursery at Stalyhill. We liaise with the nursery providers helping to ensure a smooth transition into full time education.
Please see below for contact details of some of our local private pre-school providers.
Do you have concerns about your child’s development?
The Local Offer – which can be accessed on the Tameside Council website at www.tameside.gov.uk/localoffer - should be the first port of call for anyone who has concerns about their child’s development.
It is aimed at all families who feel their children may need some extra help because of additional needs – these could be emotional, physical, behavioural and/or medical and anything from difficulties learning to read to a profound disability.
The Local Offer webpage signposts to all the services and support available for children and young people aged 0-25 with special educational needs and disabilities. It informs families what they are entitled to while also helping them to make informed decisions. As well as linking to individual school and private and voluntary nursery offers, the Local Offer covers other services and support such as SENDIASS (Tameside Special Educational Needs and Disability Information, Advice and Support Service), voluntary organisations and local activities.
Parents and carers are encouraged to seek advice as soon as they identify any concerns so that children can receive all the support they may need from the earliest opportunity.
