Reception Starters 2020

Reception Starters

Soon it will be time for your child to start Reception!

Here is a reminder of the important information for your child’s first day. 


Reception children will have part time days on:

Thursday 3rd September

Friday 4th September

Monday 7th September

Tuesday 8th September


Your child will have an AM or PM session. Please see your paperwork for this individual information. 

AM session times – 8.45am – 11.30am

PM session times – 11.45am – 2.45pm


Please arrive at school via the main school gates. Follow the one-way system to the Key Stage One playground. Please see the picture to help you. There will also be members of staff available to show you the way if you are unsure. 

Please wait at a distance from other families on the playground. Your child’s teacher will open the door and your child can enter the building. Parents are unable to enter the school building. There will be members of staff and transition stations available on the playground to support your child entering school if they feel unsure. 

A member of staff may also need to talk to you to finalise induction paperwork. This will be completed outside on the playground and full social distancing will be in place. 

When collecting your child, again, please follow the one-way system and wait on the playground. Your child’s teacher will then release your child to you from the classroom door. 


Wednesday 9th September

This will be your child’s first full day in school. 

You can drop off your child from 8.45am onwards. 

The school day will start at 8.55am

The school day will finish at 3.00pm. You can collect your children from 2.50pm onwards. 

Please use the one-way system at all times. 


We look forward to starting the new school year, seeing some familiar faces and welcoming new families to our school. Don’t forget to watch the videos on our website so you can see the classroom and the class adults.


See you soon!
