Reception New Intake 2020

Thank you for accepting a place for your child to begin school here in September 2020.

Usually at this time of year we would be inviting you to a Parent/Carer meeting in order for you to find out all the information you would need for your child to start school. Due to the current situation with Covid-19 we are unable to do this therefore, for now, we will be communicating with you via email and with links to our website.

Please be reassured that we really want to get to know your child and we will do everything we can to make this transition into school a positive experience for everyone.

We are going to start by asking you to complete this ‘All About Me’ questionnaire for your child. This will really help the Teachers get to know the children. Please click the following link to complete this questionnaire.

The teachers in the Reception team are in the process of contacting Nursery settings to talk to the children’s key workers about their likes, strengths and areas for development so that they can start to plan ideas accordingly.

In the next few weeks we will be making resources to add to this area of our website to support you and your children with the transition into school.

We will also be asking you to complete our Admission forms and part of this is to provide a copy of your child’s birth certificate so it would be great if you can have this ready. This admission pack will also contain information regarding uniform, school lunches and further details you may need.

We understand that you might be feeling anxious about how starting school in September might look for your child. We will do everything we can to work with you, your children and our Reception team to ensure that this transition into school is a great success. As soon as we can we will share the details regarding how this will look.
