Reception 2020 New Starters

Reception 2020 New Starters

Dear Parents of Reception children 2020,


On behalf of the staff at Chaucer Primary School, I am happy to welcome your child to start in September 2020.  We are delighted that your child will be starting full-time school here at Chaucer and will be joining our Reception class. This is an important time for your child and we know that it is often an anxious time for parents.

We are looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure your child can achieve their highest potential. We recognise that in order to be successful in school, our children need support from both the home and school. We know a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child’s education.

Due to the current situation we are unable to set dates for our Induction night and Stay and Play sessions.  Transition and change can be a challenge for young children especially in the current climate with school closures. We will support you over the next few months in preparing your child to start school in a variety of different ways. Please check the website under the menu-Reception New Starters 2020 for information and support. You will be receiving a class dojo invitation direct to your email, please log in in order to communicate with school with any questions or concerns, activities will also be posted on there for your child to access over the coming weeks.

An invite to download the school app will be emailed to you in order to receive letters and messages online as well as a school welcome and information pack and forms will follow in a couple of weeks for completion for your child starting school in September.


We are really excited to meet you all very soon.  Stay Safe!


Kind Regards

Mrs Jackie Willis

Assistant Headteacher and Lead of EYFS
