Welcome to Reception!
Welcome to Christ Church C of E Primary School and our Reception Class. I would like to take this opportunity to extend a very warm welcome to you and your child to our lovely school.
At Christ Church, we believe that starting school is a very special moment in any child’s life. We understand that the start your child has at school is of vital importance and we recognise that all children are unique. Indeed, while for some, starting school is an exciting time of discovery and adventure, for others, it can be a nervous time too. While this is very natural, our aim is to make the transition into primary school as smooth and as positive as possible for all children and their families.
We feel that the move from pre-school to Reception is very important but in these uncertain times, we are having to be flexible when planning our transitions. As soon as the school knows more, we will be in contact to inform you of dates and arrangements.
Whatever the scenario looks like, as parents, you will be invited to meet the class teachers and teaching partners in order to hear a little more about how the first year of your child’s schooling will be organised. You will also be invited to sign up for a home visit so that the class teachers and teaching partners can meet your child in their familiar surroundings and give you the opportunity to share any important information or ask any additional questions. You will also receive a welcome pack which should answer some of your general questions about school but do not hesitate to contact us with any queries.
We look forward to working in partnership with you and welcoming you into our school family and hope that your association with Christ Church is a long and happy one.
