Cotmanhay Infant and Nursery School

Celebrate, Inspire, Nurture, Succeed


Starting Reception

Starting Reception is an important step for children.


It is exciting but can also be scary - for children and for parents!


In Nursery, children started their school journey and Nursery laid the foundations. In reception we will build on these strong foundations.


We will be with you every step of the way. If there is anything you are unsure of please phone or email us and we will always help.


We would usually be inviting you in, giving a talk and showing everyone around together but this isn't yet possible so we will try other ways to share the information so you feel as happy as possible.


Below is a slide show of our key welcome messages.

We have also made class videos for your child to watch. If your child is in the Whales, please click on the Whales link below to watch a video of your child’s new classroom. For Robins please click on the Robins link and for Raccoons please click on the Raccoon link.
