New to Reception 2020-21

Lunch in Reception

We are delighted to welcome you and your child to Hope Primary School as part of our new Reception classes!

As a school we have had to adapt rapidly over the past few weeks. It’s definitely an unusual and challenging time at the moment, and we know you and your child might be feeling worried about the transition into Reception this September. We want to reassure you that we are here for you every step of the way.

In order to follow the government’s guidelines, we have had to adjust our arrangements for supporting this year’s transition. However we hope the transition timetable below will help put your child (and you) at ease as they get to know their teacher, classroom and peers through a staggered approach.

Here is a list of key dates and times for September. If your child’s class teachers is Mrs Robinson then please refer to class RH and if your child’s class teacher is Mrs Gardener please refer to RG.
