Welcome to all our new Reception class starters and their families for September 2021!


Dear Parents / Carers,

Due to the current school closures and Government COVID-19 guidance, we are unable to carry out normal transition arrangements.

We would therefore like to dedicate this page to you and hope to do some of our transition work through this site until such time we can meet in person.


Reception Class Teachers in September 2021 will shortly be sending out welcome letters to all families that have been offered a reception place at our school. This information will include who your child's class teacher will be. Class teachers hope to make contact with you during the next few weeks. 


Usually we would hold a parent transition meeting. As yet we do not know whether this will be possible this year due to social distancing and school closure. To give you some initial information that we would usually go through at the parents meeting, I have attached below the presentation I would take you through.



Other useful information we will begin to share with you below as well as though letters and phone calls.

I would also like to take this opportunity to welcome you to our school and to our Easterside Academy family. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call the main office or contact us through the contact page on this website. We hope you and your child will be very happy throughout their education journey with us.

Best Wishes

Mrs D Linacre



Our Reception staff would like to welcome you!
