Welcome to New Reception Class - September 2020

Hello to everyone - to parents and children still at home (who we are missing very much) and to all our families and our local community.

 

A special, very warm welcome also to the new children who will be starting school in September and their parents from the St Matthew's Team.  We are looking forward to meeting you and your children. 

 

This year it's going to be a very different transition experience for new families, but no less a heartfelt welcome from staff, governors and children (especially the new Reception Class Buddies!). 

 

Instead of introducing ourselves in the usual annual transition meeting in school that we invite parents and children to, this year we have uploaded videos for you.  We hope that they give you a flavour of what to expect when your child starts school in September.   

 

You will see videos from Rev Alan, Linda (our Chair of Governors), from the Reception Class teaching staff and also from your new headteacher, Mrs Costello, who will be taking over when I retire in September. 

 

Although you are only be able to meet some of the team 'virtually' at the moment, please be reassured that as soon as we can do, we will contact you to make arrangements to meet you and to invite your child into school.
