Welcome to Reception September 2021


Welcome to St. Cecilia’s Catholic Infant & Nursery School, and our Early Years Foundation Stage Reception Year!

Thank you for choosing St. Cecilia’s for your child. We are very proud of our setting and the journey we are about to begin with you.

Under normal circumstances we would invite you into school to look around. However, due to the continuing social distancing guidelines that are in place we are making other arrangements.

During the month of June/early July each family will receive a welcome pack from the school. In the pack will be a date and time for your child to start school in September.*

The Early Years Lead Teacher will telephone families with children ‘New to our School’ so that you can talk about and share information about your child and any health or medical needs they have.

In the meantime, please have a look at our PowerPoint presentation about Reception which an be viewed on our school website.

*the dates/times in the PowerPoint may be subject to change due to Covid guidelines



This week in Reception we are reading the book “Funny Bones”, and learning all about dark and light.


Maths Number Party!




Parental Involvement

We believe that parents and/or carers play a vital role in their child’s education. We hope to work in partnership with you – we will support your efforts at home and provide opportunities for you to engage in your children’s education in school.
