New to Reception Parent’s Information 2021

We are very excited that your children will be starting their journey with us at Griffin Park.  


We are in unprecedented times, and we do not want this to prevent us getting you and your child ready to start with us in September. Ordinarily, you would be joining us for an in-school induction and transition meeting to get to know the staff and how your child will learn, whilst being in Reception. You would also have the opportunity to complete additional information and view our school uniform.  However, to reduce risks associated with public contact we have provided some of the information below and we will be arranging a zoom induction meeting for parents and individual meetings to share information about your child.

Induction meeting 

5th July 1.30pm.

You will receive an email with details about this meeting. 

Induction booklet

You will receive an induction booklet with your information packs. Inside your child will see some of the routines we have in reception., with images of where to hang their coat, areas of the classroom and what carpet time will look like.
