New to Reception

We would like to take this opportunity to Welcome you to Christ Church CE Primary.

We are delighted that you have chosen our school for your child's Primary Education.

Ordinarily, we would be inviting you to a number of welcome events and visits for your child. Unfortunately, due to the current situation, we will need to make some changes to our usual welcome. However, we will still ensure that you have everything you need.

We will be sending you further information via email and post, however this website has all of this information plus more and will be updated with further resources between now and your child starting school with us.

We understand that your child starting school for the first time is a very important step which, even in normal circumstances can be daunting. Therefore, if you require any support, please do not hesitate to contact us using the following email address:

We look forward to welcoming you and your child to the Christ Church family at the beginning of a very exciting part of their learning journey.

To provide families with an introduction to our Early Years, we have put together a short virtual tour of our indoor and outdoor Provision at Christ Church. We hope you enjoy looking at it with your child as you begin to prepare to join us in September. ​

What can my child wear for Reception?

We do lots of enjoyable and messy activities in Reception, and inevitably the children will get dirty. For this reason we require children to wear a school uniform. We also ask that parents and carers provide a spare set of clothes which must stay on your child’s peg. These clothes do not have to be uniform, but they allow us to easily change your child should they have an accident or get wet. The clothes should be in a carrier bag labelled with your child’s name (no rucksacks, please) Please also supply a change of underwear, in case of ‘accidents’.

The school uniform for Christ Church C.E is as follows:

• White polo shirt
• Black or grey skirt/ trousers/ pinafores
• Bottle green sweatshirt/ jumper/ cardigan with or without logo
• Summer Months: Optional Green & White Summer dress

• White polo shirt
• Black or grey trousers
• Bottle green sweatshirt/ jumper with or without logo
• Summer Months: Black/ grey shorts
