Starting School September 2024

Welcome September Reception starters


Welcome to our school community! We are thrilled to have your child join us on this exciting journey of learning and growth. The Reception Starter Welcome Booklet has been carefully crafted to provide you with all the necessary information to navigate through this important phase in your child's educational journey. Please take the time to read through it together with your child, as it can help ease any anxieties and make the transition smoother for both of you.

At our school, we believe in creating a nurturing and stimulating environment where every child can thrive. We value the partnership between parents and teachers, and we are here to support you every step of the way. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.


Once again, thank you for entrusting us with your child's education. We look forward to building a strong foundation for their future success together.


Below is a list of key dates and information based on your child's transition to school:
