Settling In - Junior School

Settling In - Junior School

Joining a new school can be a very daunting experience for young children so at LEH we like to make that extra special effort to make the move a smooth and happy transition. 

During your daughter’s first week with us she will be given a ‘buddy’, an older girl in her own House (Burlington, Hackney, St. Giles or Summerleigh).  Her buddy will keep a very close eye out for her around the school and particularly at break and lunch times to make sure that she is happy and that she knows where she is going; this can take a little time!

Starting to build their friendships

In the first few days your daughter will also have the chance to take part in a ‘Team-building Day’. It is a day where she can really get to know the other girls in her class and the year group whilst focusing on skills such as planning, communication, working together and perseverance, with fun at the heart of every activity.  

Your daughter’s Form Teachers, the Head Mistress and Assistant Head give all the new FI girls plenty of help and support, not only through our comprehensive PSHE curriculum, but also by developing strong positive relationships.  This way she can make the most of the fabulous learning opportunities on offer at LEH.
