New Parent Info

Is your child starting in Reception at Whiteknights Primary School in September 2017?

If so, we would like to welcome you to our school.

Starting school is a major event in the life of a four year old and we know that you as parents/carers will want to ensure that you are able to prepare your child for this new chapter in their life.  Below you will find some important dates for your diary to help start the transition into school. If you have any additional questions, feel free to email: fsreception@whiteknights.wokingham.sch.uk or phone the school office on 0118 987 2588.

Tuesday 27th June at 9.15-10.15 am

This is an information meeting for parents/carers only.  We ask that children are not brought along to this meeting as this will be aimed at giving parents all of the information you need before your child is invited into school. During this meeting you will have the chance to:

  • Hear information from: Mr Walker (Headteacher), Miss Hogg (Assistant Headteacher for Early Years), Mrs Gillham (Assistant Headteacher for Inclusion) and Mrs Morgan (Home School Link Worker).
  • Look at the Whiteknights school uniform display. All uniform can be bought via Brigade Parents Direct (www.brigadeuniformdirect.uk.com). During this meeting we will have a small selection of uniform available to buy. We ask that you bring cash (ideally £5 notes and coins) or preferably a cheque book to pay for items you wish to buy on the day.
  • See the Whiteknights Early Years Learning Journals to see what our Reception pupils experience and learn.
  • Receive an information pack for you and your child that will confirm if they are in Crystal or Pearl class.
  • Sign up to a meeting with your child’s teacher.

Friday 7th July at 1.30-2.45

All Reception children and parents/carers are invited to school to spend the afternoon in their new classroom with their teachers. We ask that younger siblings do not come due to space in the classrooms.
