Reception 2020 Information






April 20th 2020



Dear Parent / Carer



Reception September 2020 - Welcome to Whittle Academy!



It's wonderful that you and your child will be joining us in September 2020. Whittle is a very special school and I hope that your child will be very happy here.


I am sure that you will have many questions about what starting school in September is going to look like and at the moment lots of those questions we do not have any answers to either. However, I want to reassure you that we will be doing everything we possibly can to ensure that your child has the smoothest possible start to the school year.


The Reception team and I are currently working hard on thinking about how we can get to know you and your child and give you all the information that you need for the next academic year while schools are still currently closed.


We will be in touch as soon as we have any additional information for you, whether that is transition arrangements or parent’s information meetings. We will be closely following the government guidelines on when schools will re-open and what it will look like when they do.  In the meantime, please can I ask that you get in touch with the Trust office on 02476 612161 to provide an email address that we can contact you on. In a time where virtual communications have become a necessity, we would love to be able to keep in touch with you this way.


I am sure that lots of you watched the Queen’s speech recently. I loved what she said; ‘We will be with our friends again, we will be with our families again, we will meet again.’  This time of uncertainty will pass, and children will fill our schools again.


Please get in touch with us if you have any questions and we will do our best to answer them for you.


Kind regards




Mrs Michelle Harris
