Reception 2023 - 2024
Welcome to St Mary's Catholic Primary School. We cannot wait to welcome your child into school and get to know each child and their family as they begin their school journey.
We are aware that starting school can be an exciting but anxious time for your child but please be reassured that we will work together with you to make the transition into school as smooth as possible.
Our class page will provide you with an insight into the learning that takes place within the classroom and information on the daily routines. Please continue to check this page regularly as it will be updated.
The Reception staff are always here to help but please be mindful that we may not be available to talk to you at drop off. If you wish to speak to any member of the team, please see us at the end of the day or email the school office and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
