Welcome to Reception! 

We want to give a warm welcome to all our families starting with us in Reception, in the Early Years Foundation Stage unit.    

We are looking forward to a fabulous year with you all where your child will explore a range of new experiences along side our Early Years team.  We aim to provide a happy and safe environment for your child which will enable them to become effective learners.  The children will be offered a wealth of experiences both indoors and outdoors, so please make sure your child comes dressed for the correct season.

All children have a peg on which they can hang their belongings. This includes any spare changes of clothes you wish to send in with your child. We provide all children with water, milk and a daily snack of fruit which can be accessed throughout the day, please don't send any extra snacks into school.  

Throughout the year, children will bring home a book for you to enjoy and read out loud to them.  This can be changed regularly by your child with the support of a member of staff.  We use Read Write Inc to deliver phonics and early reading so more information will be given about this as the year progresses.    

You can keep up to date with everything that is happening via Dojo. If you have not signed up, please ask one of us to assist you.  

We do ask that you always inform the early years staff or admin team in advance if there is a change of person collecting your child.  

If at any time you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. We are always available to speak to you and look forward to working with you during the year.  

Kind regards,  

Miss Stephenson, Miss Galea, Miss Cummings and Miss Streeter
