EYFS New Parents

Welcome to the EYFS New Parents. 

We would like to extend a very warm welcome to all new parents. We are delighted that you have chosen St Joseph's Catholic Primary School as the starting point for your child's education.
 
I, Miss Berry, can't wait to be your child's first class teacher at school. Here at St Joseph's we will ensure that your child has an enjoyable time at school. All staff members share a school visions that all children will develop a love for learning. Starting in Reception, the children will build the foundations and skills to become a life-long learner, and to develop into confident individuals. 
 
Please find below a copy of the 'EYFS Parent's Information Brochure'. You will have been sent this brochure to your personal email. The brochure contains a great deal of information that we hope you will find useful, including our proposed induction process this year starting with our New Reception Parents Meeting on Thursday 24th June 2021 at 7pm. You will receive a letter about the details of this shortly along with induction groups. Starting School groups will be shared with you at our New Parents meeting. 
 
There is also a welcome letter from Mrs Howells our Acting Headteacher to welcome you to our school family. The final document contains helpful tips for preparing your child for starting school.

Please do not hesitate to contact the school admin@st-josephs.gloucs.sch.uk or SLT@st-josephs.gloucs.sch.uk if you have any questions.
 
As we have had to cancel the New Parent's Evening that was due to take place this week, I have attached the Powerpoint for you to go through with your child. The Powerpoint includes pictures of the classroom, where to go on your first day, uniform and activities that we do in Reception.
 
Please do not hesitate to contact school if you have any questions.
