Is your child joining our Reception in September? Don't worry, we are here to help......

We always look forward to our new Reception classes starting every September, but we recognise this can be a stressful time for parents. This is how the process works. 

You have to apply for a Reception place through Birmingham City Council. We welcome visits to our school before you apply, just contact the school office to arrange this. Reception places are offered at the end of the Spring term and shortly after places have been offered, we will be touch to invite you to an induction session.

During the induction session, you will receive all the information you need to get your child ready to start Reception. You and your child will have an opportunity to visit our beautiful Reception classrooms and meet our wonderful staff. If your child attends Nursery at Chandos, they will have transition visits to Reception planned into their curriculum during the summer term. If your child attends a different Nursery, we will contact them to make sure we have all your children's relevant records. When possible our staff will also visit your child at their Nursery.

Early in September, before your child starts with us, two members of staff will complete a doorstep visit to say 'hello' before your child starts Reception. 

Children who did not attend our Nursery will start two days before the other children so they can have some extra time to settle into their new school. We aim for all children to start Reception on a full time basis. If your child needs an adapted timetable we will work with you to make sure your child's transition is successful

At any point, if you have a question or worry, please do not hesitate to contact us.
