Junior School Learning Team Years 0-2
Children start at Kelvin Road School when they turn five. Parents are encouraged to enrol children prior to their fifth birthday so that we can plan for their arrival.
We aim to make your child's start to school as fun as possible in a calm and nurturing environment. New Entrant children and parents are supported in the transition to our school community with a programme of three preschool visits.
