Reception - September 2021


We are delighted that you and your child will be joining Christ Church Primary School this coming September.  On behalf of the staff, governors, children and parents, it gives us great pleasure to welcome you and your family to our school community. 


As we explained in our letter sent 23rd April due to the current circumstances regarding COVID we are currently unable to invite you into school to familiarise yourselves with the building and meet the staff. Instead we will be inviting all parents/legal guardians to a virtual meeting via Zoom on Wednesday 23rd June at 6pm where you have the opportunity to meet myself and the class teachers. This meeting is just intended for parents/guardians, as your child will have an opportunity at a later date to visit the school themselves. Joining information for the Zoom meeting will be sent out on by Friday 18th June via text message.


On Wednesday 30th June your child’s class teacher will arrange a 15 minute individual zoom call with yourself and your child at an allocated time that will be advised nearer the occasion by text message. This will give yourself and your child an opportunity to meet the teacher together and ask any questions you may have.
