Starting School at Whinfield Primary September 2020
We know that starting school is an exciting time for all pupils and we will ensure that September 2020 is a happy and positive experience for all our families.
We would usually have welcomed you to visit school during the summer term, to meet the reception team and we. would have provided you with lots of reassuring information ready for your child’s first days at school, we are sorry that has not been possible this year.
September 2020 will be different to other years but we will ensure starting school is just as exciting for your child by changing the way we introduce ourselves.
This page is specifically for parents or carers of children starting with us for the first time in September 2020 to answer the many questions we know you will have around those first few days, such as:
- What time will my child start school?
- Which gate will I use?
- What uniform will my child need?
- What lunch will be provided?
Meet Reception Staff
We have three reception classes so lets meet the team of staff
Mrs Murphy is one of our Assistant Headteachers. she is the Team leader for Reception and Year 1 classes.
Your Class Teacher should be able to answer your questions although Mrs Murphy is also available to help you.
Getting Ready for Starting School
The reception teachers have created this reading book for you to share with your child showing areas of Whinfield so they are ready to start their adventure on Thursday 3rd September. Pacey is a website specifically for early years staff and parents and offers a huge amount of information and free resources to prepare you and your child for school. We attach their guide for parents below:
