Starting Reception 2023

We are delighted that you are considering sending your child to Christ Church CE Primary School in September 2024.

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 or have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us using the following email address:

We look forward to hopefully 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 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 drawstring bag labelled with your child’s name (no rucksacks, please) Please also supply a change of underwear, in case of ‘accidents’. Your child may also bring a pair of wellies to leave in school. 

The school uniform for Christ Church 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​
