Reception Transition 2021

Welcome to our new Reception children 2021

Welcome to the Apples and Pears Reception Classes 2021! We are delighted that you have chosen Clarendon Road Primary School for your child’s school journey.

If your child is joining our school for the first time, you should have received a letter via email with details of a transition visit and your child’s start date. If you haven’t received this, please contact the school office on 0161 921 1170.

Our current Nursery pupils who are coming through into Reception will also have received a letter confirming the first date in September and these pupils will take part in our school-wide transition week.

Our information session for parents is also really important and we hope to do this in person if restrictions allow. Each child will receive a welcome and information pack at this meeting which will help you and your child prepare for September. (if we have to do this meeting on Zoom, we will send the packs in advance). This meeting is useful for all Reception pupils as there are some differences between Nursery and Reception and it gives you a chance to meet the team too.

Our team are in the process of ringing nurseries for any children coming to Reception who haven’t been in our nursery. This helps us find out a bit more about them before they start at our school.

Speak to you all soon.

Take care and keep safe

Mrs R Barnes (Early Years Lead Teacher)
