Godinton Primary School

Welcome to our new Reception starters


Welcome to Godinton Primary School. This section of our website has been put together for parents and children who are due to start at Godinton, in our Reception classes, in September 2021. As we are currently unable to deliver all the usual elements of our transition programme this year, we have also created activities for the children to join in with remotely, as well as additional online information for parents.

Please click here to visit our page for parents which contains lots of information about our school, including our Parent Handbook. We have also compiled some useful links to websites and other resources you can use to help support your child's transition to primary school. We will be adding to this page over the course of the next few weeks so keep your eye out for new information.

It was lovely to meet those of you who were able to come to school for your New Intake Information Evening appointment. I hope that you found this a useful opportunity to see your child's classroom and meet key members of staff. Class allocations and start dates have been shared with parents in the information pack that you collected and don't forget the date of your child's invitation to their Teddy Bear's picnic which was sent out to you in the post. If you haven't yet collected your information pack, please do so from the school office.

We would love to create an online gallery of photos of our new Reception children, showing us the things that they enjoy doing. This will help the children to start to recognise the friendly faces of their classmates.  If you would like your child to be part of this , please click here to visit our Reception 2021 Gallery page. Details of how to send in photos can be found in your pack.

Below you will find activities your child can join in with to help them to get ready for starting at Godinton. Each week, we will be setting new challenges that can be completed at home. We hope that they will enjoy taking part.

 We are very much looking forward to getting to know your child and working with your family. If you have any questions or if there is anything that we can help with, please don't hesitate to get in touch.

We hope that you've all had a lovely summer so far and are looking forward to starting school - it's not long to go now. Have you had a go at the woodland craft trail that your teachers set for you. If not, you've still got plenty of time.
