September 2021 New Children

Transition into Reception Class and other Year Groups 2021

We are really looking forward to welcoming our new children to Reception Class and to other year groups here at St John’s Meads in September.

Due to Covid restrictions we have been unable to plan for the usual transition activities that would have taken place this school term. However, we endeavour to make the start of school a positive and happy time for all.

We have arranged Parent and child drop in visits for new families to Reception Class on Wednesday 7th July and Thursday 8th July.  These letters have been emailed individually to families.

We have invited children who will be joining us in September in other year groups to a transition morning on Wednesday 7th July.

We hope the information on this page will be helpful to all our new families joining St John’s Meads.  Please call the school office  01323 730255 if there is anything that you aren’t sure about.
