Frequently Asked Questions about starting Reception

If the answer to your question is not here please contact the school either by phone on 01502 530130 or by email on



How can I help my child get ready for Reception?

What date will my child start school?

We have not yet set start dates as we are awaiting government guidance regarding the return of all children to school in September.

Will my child start full time from the beginning?

Again we are still awaiting Government Guidance about schools opening to all children in September.

What equipment and uniform will my child need?

Children will be provided with a Book Bag and Water Bottle which will need to come into school every day.

Uniform requirements are in the school brochure which you have received.

PE uniform is also in the school brochure and needs to be in a small drawstring bag.

Every Reception child is entitled to a school dinner, so you do not need to provide a packed lunch.

Reception children are also entitled to a piece of fruit every day and, until their 5th birthday, a carton of milk.
