New Parents. Starting Autumn 2020

Welcome to St John’s!

We know you are going to love it here.


We are preparing for your child to join us in September and realise it remains difficult at present for us to offer the usual transition into St John’s CE Primary.  In line with Government guidelines we will not be able to host our usual visits and transition experiences.


Therefore, in place of school visits and home visits we have prepared some presentations that you can share with your child in order to help then to become familiar with the spaces and faces at school.

At the moment we do not have a start date for the children who will be new to us but it is our ambition, shared by the Government, to have all children with us before the end of September, if safe to do so.   We will endeavour to keep you updated and will send you information as it becomes ready and available.


On this page you will find:

  • a presentation welcoming our new Nursery children to the Nursery Classes (Squirrels)
  • a welcome presentation from Ms Parsons, for those joining our Reception Classes (Badgers and Hedgehogs)  
  • a presentation to walk you through the Badger and Hedgehog classrooms and what the school day might be like
  • a Foundation Stage social story to share with your children
