Starting in Reception

(Early Years Foundation Stage 2)

A very warm welcome to St. John's CE Primary School and Nursery as your child begins their journey into school

We are proud of what we offer children at St John's, particularly in their reception year, so scroll down and click on the links to enjoy finding out more about what we do and to get the key information you need 

I have great pleasure in offering you the warmest of welcomes to St. John's as you and your child begin a  journey at our school that starts now and will finish in July 2029. I hope that this special September 2022 starters' page is able to give you an insight into our school and help you begin to see the exciting time that your child will have at St. John's.


Your child will join St. John's at an exciting time. In 2020 we opened our brand new purpose built reception classrooms. This three classroom block has its own playground and outdoor learning areas for the children to use. You can see in the pictures on this page that the children love their new classrooms. They were designed and built with reception children in mind to make sure that our reception teachers and teaching assistants can give your child the best possible start to school life.


Please keep coming back to this page as we will continue to update it over the autumn and spring term with the latest September 2022 starter information. 


All the staff at St. John's look forward to meeting you as soon as possible.


Mr. Averis
