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, showing you around and having sessions in school for your child. We are so sad that this isn't possible this year but we will try other ways to share the information so you feel as happy as possible.


We still do not know what September will look like but we will keep you updated.


Below is a slide show of what we would have shared at the meeting. I hope this helps.


You can also click on the LEARNING tab then OUR EYFS for lots more information. 

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.
