New Reception Parents Information

Information for September 2024 Starters


We hope that you enjoyed the initial meeting that was held a couple of weeks ago.  The information PowerPoint from this meeting is attached below along with a child-friendly booklet for you to share with your child over the summer holiday.  This contains some simple information to read to your child and lots of photographs to help them know what to expect in September. Also below, you will find a list of things that you can do at home to help your child be ready to start school and a letter about our "All About Me Shoe Box" project for our new children to complete over the summer holidays and bring into school on their first day.


You should have received an email from the school office to let you know which class your child is in, what date and time their 'Stay and Play' session is and the date that they start school.  If you have any queries in the meantime, please either call the school office on 0208 5605323, send an email to the school office on, or email the Early Years team on


We are really looking forward to meeting you and to the exciting year ahead.


Have a lovely summer,

Important Information

  • PE Kits - The children will need to bring a PE kit into school from now on as they will be getting changed for their PE lessons.  Please can you ensure that your child has a PE kit in school as soon as possible.  This will be kept on their peg for the duration of each half term and sent home to be washed each holiday. 
  • Uniform labelling Please make sure that ALL of their uniform and belongings are clearly labelled so that we can reunite lost items with their owners.
