Starting EYFS September 2021
This page is dedicated to parents with children starting Reception class in September 2021 and will be updated with a wealth of relevant information over the Summer Term to aid a smooth transition.
The school will write to all parents once the cohort list has been received from Wokingham Borough Council at the end of May. An Admission Pack will also be distributed to parents in June containing useful information and several forms which need to be completed and returned to school.

Parents' Information Visits
We are pleased to offer 1:1 visits for parents and their child starting with us in September. These visits are especially useful for new families to our school community who were not able to visit our school in the Autumn due to the cancellation of the Open mornings. Parents and children will have the opportunity to meet with Miss Claire Wheeler, our Reception teacher and Miss Debra McGrail, our Headteacher, as well as view the Reception classroom and resources, and ask questions.
Please contact the School Office if you would like to book an Information visit.
Pre-School Setting Visits
Visits to pre-school settings may also be arranged in June and July subject to Government guidance. Unfortunately we will not be conducting home visits this year.
Transition Mornings in Milne Class (September)
Children will be invited to spend a morning in their new classroom on either Thursday 2nd or Friday 3rd September. The schedule will be communicated to parents in due course via email.
