We celebrate diverse completeness - We Thrive in our uniqueness


Welcome to Reception


We have such an exciting curriculum planned for you. We will experiment, explore and play using lots of sensory and art activities. We will dive under the sea to learn about the ocean. We will soar in the sky to discover our world: from Pleck to the jungle and beyond the stars. We will have adventures with astronauts, fairytale characters and dinosaurs as we learn to read, write, count and be a good friend.


The staff that work in this year group are:


Mrs Williams (Assistant Headteacher)

Miss Maiden (RA Teacher)

Ms Attan (RB Teacher)

Mrs Solanki (RC Teacher)



Reception Homework

All homework will be set on ClassDojo. Please ensure that you have the app downloaded and have enabled notifications to ensure that you receive messages that have been sent to you.

Attendance & Punctuality

It is vital that your child attends school and that they are on time every day. The doors will be open for 10 minutes for children to arrive. If you need to speak to the teacher, please try and book any appointments outside of the school day where possible.


Start Time: 8.50am (Doors open at 8.40am)

Finish Time: 3.20pm


Water Bottles

Children may bring in a clean water bottle to drink from during the school day. Children are able to re-fill bottles at school. Please ensure they are clearly labelled with your child’s name.


Milk and fruit 

Children will receive free milk until they turn 5 years old. If you wish for your child to have milk after this time, this must be booked and paid for on the Arbor app, a term in advance at a cost of £12 per term. 

Children will receive a piece of fruit for snack each day.





Every child in Reception is entitled to a free school dinner. You must make a meal selection on Arbor the day before by 11.30pm. If you do not make a meal selection, then your child will be given a cheese sandwich and a piece of fruit.


If you wish, you may send in a healthy packed lunch for your child to eat if they do not want a hot dinner from school.


Lunch time 11:30am - 12.30pm


Please note: We are a nut free school as we have many children with serious allergies. Please do not send anything into school that contains nuts, this includes chocolate spread. 

Our Menu’s can be found under the parent tab- School Menus


Uniform & PE kits

A reminder of Uniform and PE kit can be found on the ‘Parents’ section of the school website. PE kits must be worn to school on PE days only. If children arrive to school in sports attire that is not plain and logo free then you will be contacted to drop off the correct PE uniform for your child to change in to.
