Reception Starters 2020 - 2021

Dear Parents,


Thank you for your patience at this time, we have been awaiting more information from the government as to how and when we can open in September to all children. 


School will open to children on Wednesday 2nd of September


Due to the prolonged period of time most children have had away from school we have made the decision to open up part time only to reception children for the first two weeks of school.


Week one Wednesday 2nd September to Friday 4th September 8:45-11:45

Week two Monday 7th September to Friday 11th September  8:45-1:15 (children will stay for dinner then go home after)

Week beginning 14th September children in full time 8:45-3:15


This part time basis will allow a gradual introduction to school life and also allow us time to prepare children for staying all day and having a school dinner. 


Over the summer break please help prepare your child for school by,

-encouraging them to get dressed by themselves.

-to use the toilet and clean up after themselves.

-to wash their hands thoroughly.

-fasten their coat

-feed themselves with a knife and fork.

-use a cup, pour water independently into a cup.

-hold a pencil effectively

-respond to recognise and write their names.

-count objects accurately.

-recognise numbers to 10.


Thank you for your help and support at this difficult time!


We look forward to seeing you in September. 


Mrs Dutton & Miss Walker








If your child is due to start at Summerfield Primary School in September in reception class view this page for updates and links to information about the start time etc...


Firstly thank you for choosing our school we are really looking forward to meeting you all and excited for the new year ahead. 


In the normal admissions process I would arrange a home visit or nursery visit to meet your child and arrange an open day in school where you can look around, meet the staff and talk to me at length. Due to the current situation with the coronavirus pandemic we cannot follow normal proceedings. 


Below is a powerpoint with more information about reception class. 


We do not know if school will me ‘normal’ in September, we are awaiting more information from the government as to what the start back to school will look like in September. As soon as we know I will be emailing or phoning to let you know. 


In the mean-time if you have any questions I will endeavour to help you please feel free to email and a member of staff will get back to you ASAP, alternatively you can phone the school office on 01216752355 and ask for Mrs Dutton.


Many thanks,


Mrs Dutton
