22.06.20 Update on Admissions Packs


Every child starting school in September has an Admissions Pack.  This includes our registration form, which MUST be filled in and returned to school no later than Friday 10th July, and an activity booklet for your child.  Packs will be available for collection from the front of the school on Friday 26th June between 10am and 1:30pm.  Please note that these times have been assigned in order to manage the numbers of people near the site at the beginning and end of the school day, therefore we will not be giving out packs outside of these times.  Uncollected packs will be posted out to families.


In the case of inclement weather we will review our plans and put a notice on the school website.  If you do not see this, please assume that the packs will be available for collection between these times.

Dear Parents and Carers,


Our class lists for September have now been updated and will be sent out to you in the coming days.  If you have not heard from us by Tuesday 23rd June, please do contact the Office.  We are planning to host our New Parents Evening on a Zoom Meeting on Wednesday 24th June at 6:00pm.  An e-mail will be sent out to you with the details, again, if you do not receive this by Tuesday 23rd June, please contact the Office.  We will use the e-mail addresses that were given on the admissions form, if your e-mail address has changed, or you did not put one on, please could you contact the Office.


We have been working closely with our main feeder Pre-Schools and staff are now attempting to contact the Pre-Schools of children not in these settings.  It would help us if you could ensure that we have up to date contact details and opening times if your child attends a setting other than Ladybirds, Beach Babies - Landbeach or Scallywags - Westwick. 


As we are unable to host our usual transition afternoons,  we have put together a set of video presentations to give your child a flavour of school life.  I am indebted to Miss Attwell in Year 3 for putting these together in the most challenging of circumstances at the height of Lockdown, I hope that your children find them helpful.  Please follow the link to Cottenham TV below.


We are also putting together our usual Admissions Packs for families and will release details of how these will be distributed shortly.


We look forward to seeing you on the 24th June,


Kind regards,


Lucy James & the EYFS Team
