As the Headteacher and the Chair of the Governing Body of Leatherhead Trinity School & Nursery, we are pleased that you have chosen our school for your child to start Reception in September 2020.
We find ourselves in an unprecedented set of circumstances and anticipate the possible anxiety your family may currently feel about your child’s transition into Reception. Consequently, we are taking this opportunity to assure you that an induction process will take place; however currently you will understand that we cannot be specific about how and when.
Schools are working within a constantly changing environment, with different versions of guidance coming from the DfE on a daily basis. We therefore ask for your patience whilst we put together plans that are practical, flexible and above-all mutually beneficial in supporting the best possible start to your child’s school life.
We will be in touch to share our plans for induction once we are clearer about the way forward nationally.
We fully understand how worrying this might feel but the most important thing is that you and your child are well and happy; we will be ready to resume learning quickly and positively as soon as it is safe to do so. Please be assured that we are committed to working through this challenging time together.
Every single child in the country, that will start Reception in the autumn term, will be in the same position as yours. Our promise to you is that we will continue to work in partnership, wherever possible, to ensure your child’s start to school is both as exciting and positive as we can collectively make it.
