September 2020 Starters' Information Page
Dear Parents, Carers and our 'new' Class 1 children,
Welcome to St John's C of E Primary School. It is obviously a challenging time for you to be considering starting school in September, considering the current situation the world finds itself in!
Normally at this time of year we would be welcoming you all into school to come and have a look around, meet key members of staff and begin to look forward to the move to 'big school'. This year we are obviously having to do things a little bit differently, but please know we will endeavour to ensure your child's transition to us is as smooth as possible.
Firstly we have set up this information page on our school website. It is our intention that this will become a 'one-stop-shop' for anything that may be useful to you. Whilst this is new to all of us, and plans may therefore change, we envisage this page will get regularly updated as the weeks move forward, so be sure to check back for updates.
I look forward to meeting you all in due course, and welcoming you into the St John's family.
Take care and stay safe,
Matthew Downes, Headteacher.
Meet Your Teacher: Mrs Ward
Welcome to your new class, I am very excited to have you with us this year! We will have lots of fun; playing, learning and making new friends. I am looking forward to meeting you all and getting to know you and your families.
Please find links below to information you will need before you start. This will be given out to you as a paper pack as well, either when we see you, or if that's not possible, we will send it out to you.
If you have any other queries, please don't hesitate to ring the school and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
Have a safe summer and I hope I'll get to see you very soon.
