Transition from Pre-School to School
We will ensure that all the children are informed about moving to Reception through stories, pictures and circle time. We will also encourage teachers from the children's future schools to visit them in the Pre-School environment. We will make sure that Learning Journals are passed to the child’s relevant school and will prepare any reports necessary to help the children’s transition.
For girls staying at RMS, we ensure that the move from Ruspini House to Cadogan House is as seamless as possible by allowing them to get to know Cadogan House and its teachers. This may be done in a number of ways, for example:-
- encouraging the Ruspini House children, accompanied by their teachers, to visit the Reception classes enjoying topic based, child initiated and adult led activities. The girls quickly become accustomed to their new environment and teachers get to know them.
- sharing activities such as theatre workshops and special events - last year Reception were invited to see the chicks hatch at Ruspini House! Equally, Ruspini girls are invited to appropriate events at Cadogan House.
- parents of Ruspini House children are welcomed and encouraged to participate in wider school events.
- the Reception class teachers visit Ruspini House on a weekly basis to observe the girls’ progress and attainment in their own environment. During the Trinity term, just prior to the move to Reception, the Reception teachers spend more time with the girls and work with the Ruspini House staff to ensure as smooth a transition as possible.
I believe RMS offers true education to its girls - academic, social and emotional. My daughter has benefitted hugely from what it offers, she has grown into a confident, capable and very respectful young lady Parent
