Getting To Know You

When your child is first offered a place in Reception at Hackney New Primary School we will arrange to come and meet you in your own home. This is an optional part of our offer and families can opt out should they wish.

We find this is a great way for us to begin to build relationships in a more relaxed environment. Parents and children often feel more relaxed in their own home, and parents appreciate having time to talk on a one-to-one basis. After a home visit, parents often feel more confident in approaching a practitioner with comments and questions or in participating in workshops and off site visits.
