2021 Reception

We are delighted to hear that your child will be joining Chase Side Reception in September, welcome to our school! We are looking forward to getting to know you and your child and welcoming you all into our school community.


Under normal circumstances we would be inviting you in to meet some of the team and hear about how Reception works at different stages of the year. However, we are in challenging circumstances so we will adapt and try alternatives.

Starting Reception 2021

As we don’t currently know what the situation will be in September we have decided to invite you in for a ‘Home Visit Style’ meeting in the next few weeks, please check your email for personalised dates and times. At this meeting we will be discussing Reception and answering any questions that you may have. Please make sure that you bring your child and that they have a favourite toy that they can tell us about.


At the ‘Home Visit Style’ meeting you will need to return all of the completed paperwork and will be given the dates for the starting school process in September.

We know that starting school can be a nerve wracking situation and our current circumstances are not helping. The email account that we are contacting you from is a direct link to the Reception class teacher who will be available to answer any and all questions until 17th July. Please try not to worry simply put your concerns in an email and we will get back to you. 


We look forward to meeting you all very soon!
