Meet our EYFS Team!


Hello, I’m Mrs Alcock and I will be your class teacher when you start school in September.

I hope you will be very happy at our school and I will do my very best to help you settle in and feel safe and secure in our class.  I understand that starting school can be a very worrying time for some children but I know lots of ways to make you excited and confident instead of anxious.

If you have any questions, need any more information or would just like to say hello. You can e-mail me on calcock@trawden.lancs.sch.uk

or alternatively you can contact the school office on 01282 865242

Who helps us with our learning?

Mrs McGowan will be helping us with our learning in September.

She has been helping children learn at our school for a very long time, and may even remember some of your parents being here.

Getting Ready for School

Children are interested in all sorts of things and enjoy learning and exploring. Starting school is a big moment for children and you as their parents or carers.  I have put together some ideas for how you can help your child when they start school.

I have made a booklet to show you around our classroom and help with new routines.

Below are some documents, that you should have previously received. 

New Intake


There are a range of on-line resources which parents can be signposted to, which can offer guidance on preparing children for school, as well as supporting effective home learning, particularly focusing on developing communication and language skills and school readiness.

Lancashire Adult Learning have free online sessions for parents to help support children when they start school.  Ready Steady School, Fun with Phonics and Fun with Maths may be useful.


Labelling Children's Clothes

When they start school children can take a while to learn how to organise and identify their belongings.  Putting your child's name in everything will make this much easier.  Our PTFA have been in contact with a company that provides name tags and our school will receive commission on sales.


Our school ID is 22718.  

If you are thinking or ordering name tags please consider using this company and help support our PTFA whilst ensuring your child's clothing does not get lost.
