New Reception Pupils - Sept 2020

Welcome to Reception

For all new pupils and parents joining us in September, we are delighted to welcome you to our school. We understand that you will have lots of questions and there is a lot of information to take in when your child first starts school.

We invite new parents to either of our welcome briefing meetings which are in June 2020 (dates will be confirmed). During the briefing, our teachers will explain how we all work together to help your child settle in quickly. We will talk to you about various things that you will need to know about starting school; for example, the date your child will be starting school, the routines, lunch arrangements, school uniform, assessments and what your child will be learning. We will also make some suggestions on how you can best prepare your child and there will be plenty of opportunities for you to ask questions too.

You will receive a welcome pack, but we have also put the information on this page for you too.  We will also use this area of the website to post information updates . In the meantime, if you do have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.



When parents receive their offer of a place in April, the local authority will automatically assume parents wish to accept. If parents wish to decline the offer, they must let them know via the admissions website:

Transition day

Our Transition Taster Day is on Monday 13th July 2020.  The session times are as follows:

  • Morning session 9:15am-11:45am
