Starting Reception in September 2020 

A huge warm welcome to all our new Reception families! We are so excited to welcome you into our Reception classes. It is disappointing that we haven’t been able to meet you in person yet, but hopefully the information on these pages will tell you everything you need.

As part of your transition into school, you should have received through the post a Reception Transition Booklet, detailing a photograph and special message from your child’s class teacher. Please click the below link/above tab to access the transition document here on the website.

RM -Mrs N McGee

RO - Mrs C Oakes 

RF - Miss J filer

RI - Miss A Iqbal

At Shakespeare Primary School and Nursery, we really value the importance of an excellent home to school relationship. Between now and the summer holidays, you should receive a welcome phone call from your child’s class teacher. This will be the first step in developing a trusting, two-way relationship with our new Reception families.

In addition to this, we will be texting you regularly with links to more information and videos posted here on our website. They include videos of our wonderful provision and a special hello from all the staff who will be working closely with your child to help them grow and develop when they start with us in September. We can’t wait to get to know your family well over the coming months so that we can work together to best support your child at home and school.

Please see below for welcome videos from our Reception and Nursery team.
