Starting School September 2020

Starting School

We are delighted that you have chosen Bawtry Mayflower Primary School and are so excited to welcome your child through our gates in September. We are currently living through some very uncertain times due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, we want to reassure you that we will do everything possible to provide the most positive start to primary school under these circumstances. As soon as we know more and can put plans in place, we will be in touch with you. Nothing matters more to us than your child walking into school with a big, confident smile on their face.

In the meantime, you may want to have a look at the home learning on the early years blog that our teachers have put into place for our current cohort.

We have created a video to help the children transition into our Early Years Setting.
