Reception New Starters (2020-2021)
We are delighted to welcome 90 new children to the school! All our places are currently filled with first choice applications.
Currently the next steps that will definitely happen are:
- Parents will have a 1:1 time with the teacher to establish the partnership between school and home (July). We are planning to hold these on Monday 20th and Tuesday 21st July. Please get in touch if you have not yet booked a time.
- On that date your child will be able to visit their classroom and also have a look around the school. There won't be any children in school on those days. As usual, if either you or your child feels unwell please let us know and we will arrange a zoom call instead.
And all being well, we anticipate:
- September: Our plan currently is that children will start part time (mornings or afternoons) on Thur 3rd September, and that all children will be able come in full time on Monday 14th September, but parents will be able to extend this for 2 further weeks if they wish (currently this happens for a few children anyway).
Please note that we are starting children now on Thursday, not Wednesday. This is because the rest of the school is coming back on Wednesday, and we don't know how this will go. Hopefully everything will run smoothly, but in case we have a number of anxious children, we don't want this to impact on our new Reception children. We hope you understand. The rest of the timescale will hopefully remain as planned, depending on the latest advice for schools.
Please see letter below for further information (10/7/20)
You should have now received a letter (see below), asking for some further information (Nursery, any Special Needs, and specific issues we need to be aware of).
You will be informed by email which class your child will be in during the week beginning Monday 22nd June.
