New Entrants September 2024

This page is for parents/carers whose child has been offered a place to start school in Year R at Lymington CE infant School in September 2024.


Thank you to all opur new parents for confirming your place and for providing the necessary evidence. It was lovely to meet many of you and we warmly welcome you into our school family!

We invite you to our Parent Induction Meeting on Wednesday 5th June at 7pm.  This is for parents only and is an opportunity to find out more about our school, meet the team and find out key information about your child's transition to school in September.

As part of the Induction process your child will have the opportunity to visit school on three occasions in the Summer Term when they will meet their new teacher and familiarise themselves with their new classroom. These sessions will last approximately 30-45 minutes and will take place on the following dates:

Induction Visits in the Summer term – Please note the following dates;

Monday 17th June in the afternoon - This will be a 30 minute rhyme and story time for parents and children together.

Wednesday 3rd July in the morning  - This will be a 45 minute session. You are invited to settle your child into the classroom and join us for an informal coffee in the music room while you wait.

Tuesday 9th July in the morning  This will be an hour session.  We hope you will be able to leave your child to stay and play for this session.

Starting school is a milestone for both you and your child and is a time to be celebrated.  We really look forward to meeting you and working together to provide your child with the best possible start to their school life.

We will continue to post useful information on this page throughout the Summer term.
