New Starters - September 2020
On behalf of everyone at Murdishaw West Community Primary School we would like to personally welcome you and your child to our school community.
Due to the current circumstances, we will not be able to go ahead with our transition meetings for our September starters as previously hoped.
The Early Years team are working hard to make alternative arrangements to help parents & children familiarise themselves with school and what to expect when the children start with us. Although we are unable to meet with the children face to face, we have been busy thinking of ways that we can interact with the children.
We feel the best way to do this is through an app we use in school called Seesaw. Seesaw is an online learning journal that all children and families have access to at Murdishaw West.
Soon you will receive an email about how you can connect to your child’s Seesaw account. We will then update Seesaw regularly with information, such as your child's class teacher, stories, classroom tours and challenges for your child to see and interact with before they start school.
We hope this will be a fun, and most importantly safe way for you and your child to be introduced to our school and staff.
