Reception Induction 2020

Welcome!

We are delighted that you have chosen Springfields First School for your child and we look forward to welcoming you and your family to our school community. We are very excited that we will have 51 children in our Reception intake in September – our highest number of new children ever!  

As you are aware due to the coronavirus pandemic our school is currently closed and we do not have a date for re-opening.  Therefore, both our transition and induction arrangements will be a little different this year.  

This year we will have two Reception classes. The 30 younger Reception children will be in Hedgehogs class, taught by Miss Stevenson. The 22 older Reception children and 6 youngest Year 1 children will be in Foxes class, taught by Mrs Goodfellow and Mrs Wilkinson. Any child born from 1/09/2015 up to and including 21/01/2016 will be in Foxes class and any child born from 22/01/2016 to 31/08/2016 will be in Hedgehogs class.  

Please print out and complete all the information in the induction pack and return the school copy documents to the school office by Friday 22nd May. If you do not have the facilities to print out the documents please contact the office (office@springfields-first.staffs.sch.uk) and we will arrange to print them out for you. 

In this section of our website you will find lots of information and resources including the induction PowerPoint that gives you information about Reception at Springfields and links to websites to help your child with their induction into School.  

We have also added some stories read by the Reception staff - we hope you enjoy listening to them!  

There is a booklet called ‘My new Teacher transition document’. Please complete this with your child and then email it to either Miss Stevenson (hedgehogs@springfields-first.staffs.sch.uk) or Mrs Goodfellow and Mrs Wilkinson (foxes1@springfields-first.staffs.sch.uk). You  might want to send us a photo of your child (if they have not attended  our Pre-school) to help put a name to a face when we meet you.  

We look forward to hearing from you soon!
