Reception is part of the foundation stage. 

Children may arrive at school at 8.45 and join their friends on the playground. 

School starts at 8.55am and finishes at 3.15pm where you will collect your child on the playground outside the reception classroom. Please phone the School Office if you are delayed. If you've arranged for someone else to collect your child please inform the class teacher, teaching assistant or office staff in advance. 


Class Teacher: Mrs Bradley

Teaching Assistants:  Mrs Wright, Mrs Dear and Mrs Goor (1:1 Teaching Assistant).

Welcome to Lent 2020

The School Day 

Break Time 

Your child will be offered a fruit/vegetable snack at morning break time. Children may bring in a fruit/vegetable snack from home but no other snacks are permitted. Children may bring in money (50p) for the Snack Shack. 

Milk is available break time for those who have paid. Milk is free for under 5’s. If your child wishes to have milk once they turn five please see the office. 

Lunch Time 

Lunch for Reception pupils is from 12.00pm. to 1.00pm 

Children in Reception receive a FREE SCHOOL MEAL, which is funded by the Government. You will receive a login code at induction for farm kitchens menus. You need to order your child’s meals by 3.00pm on a Tuesday to receive the meals the following week. 


See attached weekly homework activities. Check out our parent pocket guides and look at our policy. Remember short 5 minute activities daily throughout the week will help consolidate learning at home. Practise recognising those graphemes when hearing a phoneme. Reading and writing tricky words and digit recognition to 20.  


See our English Curriculum page and library page for recommended reading lists and our reading parent pocket guide. Attached is a  list of phonemes and tricky words children will learn in reception and you can practice at home too. 

Meeting Teachers 

During induction before your child starts school you will meet your child’s class teacher. You will also be invited to take part in a home visit where you will get to personally meet your child’s teacher and teaching assistants and ask any questions you may have about your child starting school and your child’s teacher will get to see your child where they are most confident and happy.  

You'll be invited to meet your child’s class teacher for a private 10 minute appointment to discuss progress in the Advent Term and the Lent Term. 

If you wish to see the teacher at any other time, please make an appointment by phoning the School Office or speak to the teacher when dropping off or collecting your child. If your child accompanies you to this meeting, he/she and any other siblings are expected to stay with you at all times and go into the meeting room with you for your meeting. 

We want parents to feel welcome in our school. Please see your child’s teacher if you would like to help, for example, by accompanying classes on outings or helping with reading for the first half-hour of the day. 


If you wish, you can send in a plate of fruit or donate a book to your child’s class and write a birthday message inside. 

St Norbert's is a 'Healthy School' and would prefer  sweets, chocolate or cakes not to be brought into the classroom; this includes birthday cakes. 

You may provide a plate of prepared fruit for the class to share if you wish. 

If you wish you can buy a book to donate to your child's class and it could be inscribed: 

This book has been donated to Class ... to celebrate the birthday of ... 

Please DO NOT ask teachers to distribute 'birthday bags' or invitations.
