Reception Intake 2020

A big 'hello' to all those children and their families who will be joining us in Reception in September 2020!

To prepare for your child starting School in September, please access the following information:

  • Letter to Parents to welcome you to school.
  • Welcome Booklet  to provide you with general information about School.
  • Transition Form for you to complete online or alternatively leave a completed paper copy at the school office. A box will be provided for completed forms.
  • Information Sheet to be completed including, emergency contacts, medical information and photograph permission.
  • EMU Document to inform you about Breakfast and After-School Club.

If you wish to talk about your child or any of the information provided here, please get in touch via telephone or email to minimise face to face contact. 

In terms of September, the situation is being continually reviewed and we will notify you of details as soon as they are confirmed. At present, we expect that school will re-open on September 7th, with Reception children attending as part of a phased introduction into school.  
Free School Meals
Your child may be entitled to a free school meal throughout their time in primary school. See the information below to apply. 

Visit School
Whilst much of your child’s transition will take place in September (when current restrictions may be more relaxed), we are also offering families the opportunity to visit school on Thursday 2nd July.  These visits will be conducted in small groups, within our school hall to ensure social distancing is possible.  Due to the current circumstances, we have allocated families a time, should you wish to visit.  You have been informed of your allocated time via email. 

Meet the Teachers


Getting to  Know You
Starting school is a big milestone for your child and there are some things that can be worked on at home to help them have the best possible start in September. Please see the information below for some key areas.

We are looking forward to meeting you and your family. We would like to find out about what you like and don’t like. Do you have a favourite story, or song or toy? Help us get to know you by completeing the ‘All about me’ booklet or make a little scrapbook all about you!
