Welcome to the Reception Class
If there is any information that you would like to see added to the class page please speak to one of the class teachers and if we can add the requested information we will.

Children in Reception enter school through the main school gates and enter through the Nursery entrance door at 8-50am. A member of staff will be at the door to take any messages or answer any queries you may have..
Reception children walk independently into school and are met by school staff at their classroom door.
The Door for Reception closes at 8.55am. If you are late you will need to bring your child to the school office.
If, for whatever reason, you cannot collect your child from school and you nominate another person who is on the school contact form, please ensure that you inform the school as we cannot release a child to someone else if we have not previously been informed. This will prevent any unnecessary upset for all concerned; as it is essential the child’s welfare comes first.
Any absence affects the pattern of a child’s schooling and regular absence will seriously affect their learning. Any pupil’s absence disrupts teaching routines so may affect the learning of others in the same class.
Ensuring your child’s regular attendance at school is your legal responsibility and permitting absence from school without a good reason creates an offence in law and may result in prosecution.
Poor punctuality is not acceptable therefore at least once a term we will tell you the number of minutes of education your child has missed. If your child misses the start of the day they can miss work and do not spend time with their class teacher. It is in this period they receive vital information and news for the day. Late arriving pupils also disrupt lessons, which can be embarrassing for the child and can also encourage absence.
Any parents/carers arriving with their children after 8.55am will find the door /gate closed. They will then need to take their child to the school office. A late card will be issued for the child to take to the classroom with them.
