Information for Parents of Children Starting in Reception in September 2020  

Welcome to Fynamore!

We are very pleased that you have chosen our school as the next step in your child’s learning journey. Starting school is an exciting time for parents and children alike (albeit a little daunting at times, as well). Our hope is to make this transition as smooth as possible and support your child as they begin school life.

Usually, at this point in the year we would begin by sending out details of all of our transition arrangements for the coming months. However, this year, following the Coronavirus outbreak, all schools are in unfamiliar territory - with home learning and social distancing replacing our typical days. 

Currently, our school is open but only for children of keyworkers or those children that are vulnerable. We realise, therefore, that things may need to be done a little differently this year, depending on the next steps the government would like schools to take. 


Rest assured, we know this is a significant time in your child’s life and their steps to starting school are important to all of us here at Fynamore. For this reason, we plan to hold off on sharing particular dates, just for now, until there are clear steps on how the country will be moving forwards following the Coronavirus outbreak. As you can imagine, it is very important to us that our school community (including our new children) are safe, happy and well.


In the meantime, we have included some quick links from this page that may prove useful in supporting your child at home as you prepare for the first year at school. We have included a link to our Early Years information page, which has more details about Reception Class activities and what to expect when your child starts school. There are also links to two external websites with useful information and advice to help you support your child's transition to school (BBC Bitesize and the Professional Association for Childcare and Early Years - PACEY).


Please click on the purple buttons above to access these additional resources.
