September 2024 - Reception Starters Information

As a school, it is of utmost importance that we set secure foundations for children’s lifelong learning, starting with their transition to Reception. We understand the importance of seeing the learning environments first hand and acquainting yourself with the class teachers prior to your child starting school. For this reason, Highfield operate an induction afternoon, four mornings 'Learning Together' sessions and a home visit, all prior to the summer holidays. We will also be operating a staggered start at the beginning of September for all Reception children.

Registration Form  - All new parents need to complete the registration form below by 15th June 2024 latest (which can be emailed back to school office or dropped off in person). We also require a copy of your child's birth certificate (no originals please) but can be a scanned/copy taken on a phone.

If you require a paper copy they will be available at the PEEP and induction sessions.

PEEP sessions

We will be offering four morning sessions on Tuesday 11th June, Tuesday 18th June, Tuesday 25th June and Tuesday 2nd July 9am-10am where you and your child (younger siblings also welcome) can come and enjoy an hour of songs, rhymes, stories, Reception learning experiences and informal talks for parents and carers, led by our Early Years Lead who will be joined by the Reception team.

Induction session

Wednesday 3rd July 1.30pm-2.30pm

Home Visits are week commencing Monday 8th July. A sign-up form will be sent to parents/carers in the coming weeks.


Uniform samples will be available during the PEEP and induction sessions so that you can check sizing before ordering online. We advise parents to place uniform orders by Friday 5th July. Orders can be collected from the school office from Monday 15th July - Friday 19th July 9.15am-3pm. Alternatively, you can collect uniform after the summer holidays on Monday 2nd September 2024 from 10am-2.30pm.
