Starting Foundation Stage


Dear Parents, Carers and children

If your child is offered a place with us at Discovery Primary Academy; we endeavour to create a smooth transition into school for both the child and the family. We believe in offering several stay and play sessions throughout June/July and then the opportunity to meet with the class teacher on a one to one basis in September, alongside making contact with any previous settings before the journey into school starts. 

Here are some of the comments that our current cohort of families have said:

'The stay and play helped familiarise my child with environment and prepare them for school.' 

'The communication is superb.'

'My child settled better than we ever expected.'

'The teachers and TA's have been amazing with him.'

'The whole process has been amazing and so welcoming.'


In the meantime, explore our website to find out more about the academy. 

Any questions, worries or concerns please email: and we'll be happy to help.


We look forward welcoming you into our academy.

Mrs L Chapman

Assistant Headteacher/Early Years Leader
