St Margaret's-at-Cliffe Primary School

New Reception Class September 2020

Dear Parents/Carers

We are so excited to have you joining us in September 2020.  We normally have lots of transition activities starting from now, but this has not been possible this year due to COVID-19.  Sadly, this has resulted in us not being able to meet in person, or give the children the opportunity to come in to school for taster sessions.

We have tried to create the next best option; this section of our website is here to provide information to you and also for your child.  You can meet the EYFS team, find out what your classroom will look like, and find details of the items you will need for September.  You can also watch us reading some stories all about starting school by clicking the links below:-

Mrs Collins reads 'I am TOO absolutely small for school'

Mrs Wallis reads 'Harry and the Dinosaurs go to School'

At this time, we are unable to release term dates for September or timings for the day.  We will keep this page up-dated and add this information once confirmed.

Please do contact the school if you have any queries at all,

We can’t wait to meet you!

Mrs Collins and Mrs Wallis
