Starting School in September 2020


 Welcome to all our new parents, 


We will be adding information on this page about your child starting school in September. 


You should have received an email to a link to Class Dojo. This is how we keep in touch with parents and share photos, videos and information about Brackensdale. If you have not received a link please contact our Early Years Lead Mrs Chapman:


Here is a copy of our information booklet about starting school.

Information about school visits in July


I just wanted to keep you informed now that we have had some more information about starting school in September.

After speaking to Mrs Mills we have decided that the safest way forward is to offer a time for you and your child to come into school.

During July we will be inviting our new children, with one parent only please, to come and meet your new teacher. This will happen on Friday mornings and will last for 15 minutes. To comply with health and safety guidance, we will show you round one at a time so unfortunately there will not be a chance to meet the other children in the class. During this time you will be able to look at the classroom and meet your child's teacher. If you have any questions we will do our best to answer them on that day.

We are working on the assumption that school will be open as normal for the Autumn term however, we cannot know that for certain and we will have to follow government guidelines.

Over the next few weeks you will receive a phone call from myself or one of the Reception teachers to arrange a time with you.

All forms will be sent electronically to reduce the risk of transmitting the virus so please can you fill these in when you receive them.

I hope this is helpful and reassures you that we are acting in the best interests of everyone involved.

More information will follow as we receive it.
