When children start reception, the focus is on creating a welcoming environment where the children can feel safe and cared for. The priority when children start is to make sure they feel settled and attend school every day.

While remembering that they are only little, building a child’s independence can support their transition into reception.

Although it’s children who are physically transitioning to reception, this is a big milestone for parents too! Starting school can be a scary and exciting time for both parents and children! The teachers and school are there to ease any worries or concerns you may have, so please reach out if you have any questions.

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. Please see the current learning page to see what your child will be learning about this half term.
