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 in mid-May. An Admission Pack will also be distributed to parents at the Information Meeting in June or posted if a face-to-face meeting is not possible due to Government guidelines.
