Reception Entry 2020

New Reception Intake September 2020

Dear Parent/Carer,

We are delighted that your child has been offered a place at our school and that you are now part of our Parish family.  We very much look forward to being part of your child’s learning journey and to work in partnership with you.

The current school procedures in place due to COVID-19 present a challenging situation for us, but we want to reassure you that we are working hard to make sure that your child has the best possible start to their school life.  We are responding on daily basis to the advice we are given by the government.  This means that at the moment we only have in school pupils from our current YR, Y1 and Y6 classes along with children who come under the Key Worker or Vulnerable categories, working in small groups with staggered timings throughout the day.  Those children not in school, work at home and we provide home/school learning resources.

The current situation means that we are unable to provide you with our usual timetable for school induction, which would include a meeting for parents and two story time afternoons for the children.  The health and safety of all of our school community is paramount and so we cannot allow additional people on site at the moment.  However, this just means we need to look at how to do things differently this year! 

On this page are a number of documents which will help you find out more about our school.  Please refer to the New Admissions Checklist for clarification on documents, including forms that need to be completed and returned to the school.  Please could you ensure that the main admission form is completed by Friday 26th June.  Please click here to access the form:

In addition, we have created a dedicated email account to deal with any queries you may have and for you to email back any paperwork.  The EYFS lead, Senior Leadership Team, Safeguarding Staff, Office Team,  SENDCo and I will be happy to assist you in any way we can; we will be making contact with each of you personally over the coming weeks via a phone call.

We will soon be uploading some videos to the website which will provide you with a virtual experience of our new parent’s meetings and will also be a chance for your child to share a story time with the EYFS team.  

Thank you for choosing Parish School and we look forward to meeting you in person soon.

With kind regards

Mrs R. Coleman
