New Starters - September 2020

Welcome to Churchend Reception!


Dear Parents and Carers,


A warm welcome to Reception at Churchend School. This page is for families with children joining us in September 2020.  For some of you, this will be the first experience of our school.  For others, you may be familiar with us if you have older children, or your children have been to our nursery.  We are really looking forward to meeting you all, and welcoming you to our Reception team. 


Unfortunately, due to current circumstances, we are unable to meet you in person at present. Instead, we have compiled an informative powerpoint which has been narrated to give extra information.  This can be found below. It explains important information that you will need to know about your child starting in Reception. Even if you are an existing member of the school community, please watch - as it highlights changes to the school uniform as well as teaching staff and class names.


If you have any questions that have not been answered by the presentation then please mail your questions to the school office ( by 4:30pm on Friday 26th June.  Please ensure your email is clearly marked as Reception new starter question so that it reaches us successfully.  Answers will be compiled and shared with all parents and carers on this page by Friday 3rd July.


Information about the arrangements for the start of term in September will be sent to you before the end of the summer term (by Friday 17th July), when we hope to have a clearer understanding of what schools and nurseries will look like following the government guidance about keeping our pupils, families and staff safe.
