Starting School in Reception

Unfortunately we are unable to offer tours of the school to reception parents at the moment due to Covid-19.  

We have a virtual tour of the building on this website

About us - Virtual School Tour 

and have created a video for you to see what the reception class looks like at this time.

Normally we would then welcome you to a meeting in the May or June to welcome you into school and meet the key adults that your child will get to know. Later on you will also been invited into school for a parent workshop to help you, as parents and carers, how best to support your child in school. 

As soon as we know these dates we will send letters directly to the parents and carers whose children are due to start school that September inviting them to attend. 

Children are also usually invited in for some transition sessions to support their move into full time education. 

In 2020 and 2021 these plans may have to be adjusted due to the impact of the coronavirus. 

All children in reception are entitled to a FREE hot meal when they are in school. Here is a link to a video from our suppliers Norse:  https://youtu.be/-v9zm31mvdc

The current menus are below for your reference. These are changed twice a year in October and April.
