Nursery & Reception September 2021

Important Note: If your child is starting Nursery or Reception in September 2021, please contact and ask to be put in touch with Mrs Parkinson (EYFS Leader). This will enable a dialogue between you and the school to enable us to make your child's transition to our EYFS department as smooth and seamless as possible.

Thank you for your patience in these unusual times as we plan for the safe return of our current children as well as welcoming yours in the hopefully not to distance future.


We would have normally invited your child in for stay and plays during this summer term and conducted home visits before they start in September. Unfortunately under current guidance neither is possible.


We remain unclear as to what the guidance will be in September for schools, however we intend to still provide an opportunity for induction, which will replace our usual summer term stay and plays. Once we are able to offer a start date, we will also offer stay and plays, a optional staggered start and a parent meeting. Further details of this will be provided when we can provide exact dates.


We have set up this  page to help with your child's start to school and we will update this with information over the coming weeks.


If you have any questions in the meantime please mail them to


We currently publish  a weekly family newsletter via out website, which may be of interest. You will know your child best, perhaps talking to them about our school and showing them photos may help them to prepare.


To view the newsletter please follow the link below




Many parents will want to buy uniform ahead of September and these circumstances are no different.  However we advise parents each year, that children can grow a lot over the summer before they start, so when thinking of uniform please take this in to consideration.


Uniform can be ordered by emailing and your order will be ready for collection 1st & 2nd September


If you would rather wait until September, this is also Ok and we will have the uniform we sell in stock.


Please refer to our uniform booklet for details on uniform, what we stock and prices
