Saint John's Church of England
Primary School

New Reception Class September 2020

Dear Parents and Carers,
Welcome to Saint John’s CE Primary School. We are absolutely delighted that your child will be joining us in September and hope this will be the start of a long and successful partnership.
Under normal circumstances, there would be opportunities, such as play sessions and a parent meeting, for you and your child to meet us during the Summer term to ensure a smooth transition. Unfortunately, as things stand with the partial re-opening due to Corona Virus, this looks unlikely to happen before September. Ms Griffiths, the Reception Teacher will be calling you in June to introduce herself and have a chat about your child. As we are unable to visit Pre-School Settings, we will also be ringing key workers shortly, but appreciate that your child may not have attended for some time.
We understand that starting school can be daunting and if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Ms Griffiths and she will answer these via email as best she can:
fgriffiths@st-johns-pri.gloucs.sch.uk
Attached in the documents is a lovely story about starting school ' Suzie Starting School.' which we hope you and your child will enjoy sharing together. The author produces a whole series of stories on different adventures: http://www.suziebooks.co.uk
Currently, we believe that your child will be starting part-time in September due to the National situation, however, we are awaiting further guidance from the Government and will keep you informed as much as possible.
We will endeavour to make your child’s start to Saint John’s Primary School the best we can, and we look forward to meeting you very soon.
Kind regards,
Mrs J Moxham
