RFA READY - Support for new EYFS starters


We cannot wait to meet you and your family in September and start our learning adventure. Starting anything new can be a daunting prospect so this page is dedicated to getting you and your child ‘RFA ready!’. Please familiarise yourself with all the content so that we can make your child's transition into school as seamless as possible!


Before you start, you can follow us on social media so you get a feel of what we do and why we do it.



If you have any questions about anything you read on this page, please email: [email protected]
