Reception Intake 2021
Dear children, parents and carers
Welcome to St. Wulstan’s!
We were so pleased to hear that you and your child will be joining us at school in September and we do hope that we will be able to welcome you to St. Wulstan’s very soon.
We are so sorry that we are not able to offer you the opportunities we normally offer our new entrants at this present time because of COVID-19 Usually we would be inviting you into school to spend some time meeting your teachers and your new classmates, but unfortunately this year we are having to do things differently. Welcoming our new children and their families into our school is a very exciting time for us and we will be doing everything possible to ensure that your child receives the same opportunities as other cohorts, even if this means offering them later.
We hope that you enjoy our website and in particular this page. We will be working together to add lots of information for you and your child to enjoy. New information will be posted every week, so please keep visiting us here.
We hope that we can meet you very soon. In the meantime, take care.
In this section you will find information relating to your child joining our Reception class in Autumn 2021.
