New Starters Reception Information

On this page you will be able to find a range of information and resources to support you and your child as you prepare to start school.

All of the resources can be found on the menu at the bottom left of the screen.

Videos

All of the school staff are looking forward to getting to know you as you start school. Mrs Desborough, our headteacher, has made a video welcoming you to the school.  There are also videos from Mrs Elkin and Mr O’Leary, our two reception teachers, and Oscar, one of our Year 3 students. There is also an information session and storytime for your new starter to enjoy.

Information session

We have recorded our information session as a short video for you to watch at a time convenient to you.

 

Resources

  • Welcome to Robin and Wren classes- a booklet showing photos of the two reception classes and other key areas around school.
  • Reception 202-21 booklet- an information leaflet about our reception classes and your child’s first year
  • Your Journey to School- a tracker put together by the EYFS Leads across the schools in the Cam Trust, detailing skills we hope children would be developing on their entry to school. This may provide you with ideas of things you can do over the next few weeks to support your child in preparation for starting school.
