Welcome to Reception

Welcome to Ss Alban and Stephen Catholic School’s reception year group for September 2020. We are really looking forward to meeting you in September!

Here is the presentation to parents: Welcome to Reception (Parent Presentation)

We are all living in challenging times at the moment, and we are sorry we cannot welcome you in person as we would normally do. Instead we will collect resources that we hope you will find useful over the summer.

We believe that children who are ‘school ready’ are happy, healthy, curious and ready to learn and will benefit the most from what school has to offer.  To this end we hope you find the following resources helpful in preparing your child for school. Obviously we can’t meet friends or join the library at the moment, but there are lots of ideas you can do.

Please also look at our Reception page in the ‘School Life’ section, to see the fun we have at school. There are some photos below to give you a taste!

We look forward to welcoming you as soon as possible, and if you have any questions please do get in touch.
