Reception New Starters September 2020




A welcome note from the Head teacher

A very warm welcome to all parents and carers of the children who will be joining us in September! I am Ro Roberts, Head teacher of Willowdown Primary and I am looking forward to welcoming you all tot he school family, if you're not already part of it. At the moment we are recruiting a second Reception Teacher for the school and will be making an announcement over the next fortnight as to who we have recruited. The new teacher will Join Heather Oliver who has been Reception Class teacher here since February 2019.

Ideally we would be starting transition sessions for your child by now, but due to COVID-19 we are now looking at other ways to make contact with you. If restrictions ease up we hope to hold some face to face meetings with you, either individually or in person.

In the meantime the brand new Reception classrooms are almost built as part of our new extension and are still on course to be ready during August. If you're passing this way any time soon you'll see the building is up and the windows go in next week. This is such an exciting time for the school and your child will be one of the first to benefit from this brand new purpose-built Early Years setting.

We will be putting together your starter packs soon and would ask  you to return them as quickly as you can so we can process them in good time for September.

I f you haven't already joined our Facebook page it is a great way to find out what we get up to here at school. You can find the page here:

Do feel free to contact the school via if you have any queries. 

Until we speak again I wish you health and happiness during these most unusual times.

Kind regards,

Ro Roberts
