reception cohort 2020/2021
We have received the names of all the children who have been offered a place in our Reception classes starting in September and are looking forward to meeting all the children and families. As schools are currently closed, our admissions processes will work slightly differently. Parents/Carers, if your child has been offered a place to start in our Reception classes in September and you want to take the place, then please accept the place online via the Local Authority. (There will be instructions as to how you do this included in the email/letter you received). Once you have accepted your place, we will receive an updated list from the Local Authority and we will contact you to inform you as to how we are continuing the admissions process during this time. We do understand that you may have some questions and we want to do our best to answer these. Therefore could we ask that any questions are sent to the school office email: firstname.lastname@example.org and we will endeavor to answer them.
Although children are not attending their usual nurseries, playgroups, childminders, etc, starting in Reception may seem like a very big leap for any child and we will work our hardest over the coming weeks and months to make it as smooth and positive as we can do for your child. Whilst at home, you can read stories about starting school, look at the Reception class pages on our website as well as looking at school uniform and talking about all the fun that children will have.
We are looking forward to meeting you and being a part of your learning journey.
'Together we learn. Together we achieve.'
