In September 2020 we hope to welcome our new reception class at St Mary and St Chad First School. If your child is due to join us, this area of the website is designed for you.
Below you will find the following documents which are aimed to help you prepare and for your child to be prepared for starting school.
- A general introduction presentation to our school
- A general introduction presentation to the Reception class
- An introduction to the curriculum that your child will receive when they start school
- A starting school booklet for you to share with your child
We will add information to this page as September comes closer and we have more information about the provision schools will be offering in September.
We appreciate you may have many questions and unfortunately we are unable to meet with you to answer these enquiries. Therefore, we have a few options that you can use.
General admin questions - Please ring school and ask to speak to Sharon - 01902 850373 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Questions specifically about Doves class or related to the teaching and learning please email email@example.com

On the afternoons of September 3rd, 4th, 7th & 9th there will be settling-in appointments to meet one-to-one with the Reception Teachers.
Details of the booking system will be sent to you by text once bookings are open.
Update - 22.06.20:
We have now made contact with all pre-school settings. Sadly, as transition visits are not possible this year, it is our aim over the next few weeks for a member of the Doves Class staff to call you, for an informal chat. If you miss the call, please do not worry, we will call back. We hope to introduce ourselves, find out a little more about your child and answer any questions that you may have.
We look forward to speaking to you soon.
Doves Class Teaching Team
