Reception 2023/24

Dear Parents/Carers, 

Thank you for accepting your child’s place with us at The Canons C of E Primary School, we are delighted that your child has a place at our school.

In order to get things moving with the transition we have set up a new email address specially for our new intake of children

You will find a ‘Starting School’ booklet on this page which will be a great talking point with your child about their imminent new journey into school life. There is also a leaflet which will give you some ideas of how to start preparing your child and becoming ‘Reception Ready’.  
We are keeping up to date with the latest government advice and our normal transition programme may look slightly different this year, however we will be in regular contact with you and any questions or queries please contact us using the email address  above.

We look forward to meeting you soon. 

Kind Regards, 
The Reception Team.
