To the Outgoing Reception Parents & Children


Many thanks to all the parents, children and family for their kind words, thoughtful cards and generous gifts you gave to myself and Mrs Long. They are very much appreciated.


I hope you have a fun summer with your families and that the children come back to school rested and ready for Year One.


A message for the children - be good, be safe and have fun!


Mrs Turley


To the New Reception Parents


Welcome to Reception's class page.


Reception's class page has lots of links and information that should help you and your child throughout the year. There are useful websites for both information and age appropriate gaming, phonics flash cards,  prayers used in school, videos to support your child's learning and information fact sheets. Please remember to check back regularly!


See you in September!

Mrs Turley


A Few things to remember before starting school:

  • Help your child get used to wearing the formal uniform by letting them try on their uniform over the summer.
  • Short sleeve shirts are best.
  • Don't forget that elasticated tie!
  • Help your child learn to put their shoes on the right feet - velcro goes to the outside.
  • 'Wear-in' any new shoes before the first day of school. 
  • Put a key ring on your child's reading packet and pump bag to help them identify it out of 30 that are the same!
  • Encourage your child to do things by themselves to help improve independence and resilience.
  • Remember to sign up to 'Dolce' to order lunch for your child. If you have any problems with this, please contact the school office on Monday 2nd September. Without an order, your child will not get their food preference for lunch.

Dear Parents


Welcome to Reception's Class web page.This page is intended to help both the parents and family in their journey through Reception. Please use the icons above to navigate your way through the page.


School drinking flasks will be given out on your child's first day in school. These are made from recycled materials and should be filled up with water and brought to school every day. Please name it and add something to help your child identify their bottle.


I hope you have a wonderful summer holiday with your children and I look forward to seeing you all again in September with our new Early Years Unit and outdoor space.
