Reception Transitions September 2021

Stay and Play session – children only

We are currently not planning to make any changes to the planned September start for the children in Reception, but we will have to keep this under review. Currently Stay and Play sessions are still planned for Friday 3rd September.
Session 1: Friday 3rd September 2021 10am - 11am or
Session 2: Friday 3rd September 2021 1pm - 2pm

If you have not booked a session you can still sign up for one by accessing the following form:

This is an invaluable opportunity to allow your child to begin to familiarise themselves with their new classroom and to meet the teaching team. When you arrive at the school, please report to the main office where you will be directed to your Reception classroom. Parents will not be staying for the session, however there will be an opportunity for you to talk to the staff at pick-up time.

Start dates remain as follows:
Monday 6th and Tuesday 7th September 2021      9am - 12pm (lunch not included)

Your child will then start full-time on Monday 13th September 2021. The normal school day starts at 8.55am (gates open from 8.45am) and the end of the day is 3.30pm. Please be aware that this is COVID dependent.

Thank you for your understanding in these difficult times. If you do have any questions or queries please do not hesitate to contact the school office on 01252 716729 or email
