Starting in Reception

We are delighted your child is going to be joining our school and cannot wait to share this special journey with you. Our website contains a wealth of information about our culture and ethos and will give you more of an insight into life at St Stephen’s.

Our aim is to make the transition to school as smooth as possible for you and your child. We send new starter packs to all families during April once you have received an offer of a place.

Information for Carers and Parents

All new Reception parents will be invited to an information evening to help get to know more about life at St Stephen's, in particular in Reception.

To get to know your child and help to give them the smoothest possible start to school, we have a bespoke induction process including Stay and Play Sessions, Nursery visits, settling-in sessions and home visits. Information will be detailed in your induction packs.

If you have any questions about this, or about any other aspect of starting school, please contact us at or 01225 311665 and we will do our best to help you.
