Hello everyone, This year is my first in Reception (which I'm loving by the way!) and so is the first year that I shall be doing the induction process. The previous teacher didn't really do much in terms of induction and I am keen to set up a good programme to make the transition a smooth process. So...I was wondering if anyone has any great ideas that they would be willing to share? I've already downloaded a welcome booklet (thanks cariad2!) which I'll tweak to fit with my requirements, but I wondered about timescales and numbers of visits ect. I would really appreciate some advice on; When do you usually start the process? How many pre-visits do you do? What are the length of these visits? Do parent's attend and stay with the children? Do you do home visits? I work in a special school and will probably only have an intake of around 6-8 children (I'll be keeping some of my curent cohort of N/R/Y1) Thanks in advance for any advice you are willing to share.
