Autumn Open Events (November)

Open Event Organisation

The table below is organised into three sections. The first section provides the details of the invitation to all parents to join our autumn open evening event. The second section includes a family guide to our open evening. The third and final section shares the most recent open evening presentation led by the head teacher.



Open Event Invitation

At the beginning of the autumn term each year, Year 2 parents typically begin to think about the transfer to Junior School. Chesswood Junior School hosts it open events towards the middle of November each year. We begin to organise and advertise these events towards the end of September to both Lyndhurst and Springfield Infant School parents. The letter opposite is sent to all families on roll at both schools by email and hard copies where required.
