On this page, we have included some key information for parents, and a video to share with your child showing the Reception classrooms, playground and corridor area. We hope this page will make starting school easier for you, and your child. We understand these are very strange times and will do all we can to make you and your child feel safe and happy in school. If you have any queries, please scroll down to the bottom of the page for our contact information and we will reply as promptly as we can.
We look forward to welcoming you all to Reception in September. It will be a fantastic year!
We can't wait for lots of fun, supporting and encouraging your child as they grow in confidence and independence.

Information for Parents
There are two classes in Reception. The class teachers are Miss Dodgson (RD) and Mr Kirkbride (RK).
Our learning support assistants are Mrs Szelast, Miss Eaton, Miss Pritchard and Miss Stead.
You will receive a letter in the post inviting you and your child into school, in September, to meet the Reception staff and have a look around the Reception classrooms. At this time, we will give you the most up-to-date guidance for safety in school regarding coronavirus, your child's start date, and the class your child will be in. You will be able to have a chat with your child's teacher, and talk through any questions you might have.
School Uniform: Yellow, short sleeved polo t-shirt, royal blue school jumper, royal blue jogging pants and sensible school schools without laces.
PE Kit: School PE t-shirt, navy shorts, pumps, and a pump bag.
Book Bags: We encourage children to bring book bags into school everyday. These can be purchased from school, in September.
School Times: The school day starts at 8:55am, and finishes at 3:15pm. In the morning, we encourage parents to come into school with their child, to help them in the cloakroom and to find a friend or activity.
Lunch Time: Children may stay for a hot dinner or bring a packed lunch. In the first few weeks they may change from a hot meal to a packed lunch or vice-versa. After that children may only change at the beginning of a half-term as the school meals have to be ordered. Lunch boxes need to have your child’s name and class on it.
If you have any questions or require anymore information before September, please don't hesitate to contact us. Please use the email addresses below:
