Flying Bull

New Entrants

Starting Dates and Play Sessions - September 2020 

We are so pleased to be able to share information regarding your child's start at The Flying Bull Academy for September. We would like the children to join us between 9 am and 12 pm on:

Wednesday 9th September

Thursday 10th September 

Friday 11th September 

These play sessions will be an opportunity for your child to meet their new teachers and peers in a relaxed and informal session. The children will be provided with a snack but will not stay for lunch on these days. Children should wear school uniform for these sessions. 

From Monday 14th September we will be staggering the start for Year R children based on their age and month of birth. This will allow the younger children in our cohort to experience just mornings and lunchtimes before benefiting from an afternoon at home!

Children born between 1st September and December 31st will attend all day from 8.30 am -2.45 pm from Monday 14th September 2020 onwards.

Children born between 1st January and 31st August will attend from 8.30am – 12.45 pm for the first week (Monday 14th September – Friday 18th September). They will leave school after lunch.

From Monday 21st September we would like all Year R children to attend school between 8.30 am and 2.45 pm.

In order to reach the Year R classrooms, we would kindly ask you to follow our one-way system on and off site. You will need to enter the school via the Malins Road entrance (next to the Buckland Community Centre) and exit via Steerforth Close. There will be adults on hand to show you the way!


Meet the Teams

It has been great speaking with parents and carers over the last week or so. Mrs Barker and I are pleased to know more about your little people so that we can begin preparing for September. We are really looking forward to meeting the children and showing them around their new classrooms. We can't wait to get started!

Returning Documents

Please return your completed pack of forms to the school office. If you are new to The Flying Bull Academy you will need to bring your child's birth certificate when you return the forms. A member of our office team will then take a copy. If your child already attends The Flying Bull Academy nursery we do not need another copy of your child's birth certificate.


A huge welcome to you all. We are really looking forward to meeting you and your child and starting our learning journey together in September. Here at The Flying Bull Academy we believe that learning should be fun and engaging. Check out our EYFS mission statement to find out more about what your child can expect in Reception class.
