New to Reception 2020 - Information for Parent/Carers


We would like to wish a warm welcome to all the new families that will be joining us in September 2020.  We are very much looking forward to meeting you all.

Update - June 2020

You will have recently received your enrolment form via email.  Please complete this and return it to the school office as soon as possible.  If you would like a paper copy, please contact the school office on 01245 467474 and they will arrange one for you to collect.

We will be updating this page regularly with any news and correspondence that you may find useful. 

Due to the current Covid19 situation,  we are carefully considering arrangements for September and will do our very best to make sure that your child's transition to school is as smooth as possible.

Our Early Years Leader, Mrs Bentham, will be working with local pre-schools and nurseries. 

If your child has any medical or special education needs, please contact Mrs Robinson on 07850 903896 to discuss how we can support.

To help your child’s transition into school in September we will have a staggered timetable for the first week and we will advise you nearer the time if you child will attend in the morning or afternoon.
