Children starting Reception Class at Northern in 2020.


We are delighted that you have accepted a place for your child at Northern Primary School. We would like to welcome you to Northern community, and share some information with you about your child's journey with us from September 2020.


I know that this is a really important stage in the journey of your family and I would like to reassure you that even in the current situation of social distancing we will ensure that both you and your child receive a transition to Northern which ensures you feel happy and confident about September. Unfortunately due to the current situation we are unable to plan our transition as we would normally, but please be reassured that both you and your child will have had a tour around school (either in person or virtually) and you will have met Mrs Ewens who is our Reception teacher as well as Deputy Headteacher before September. If we are unable to visit your child at Nursery or at home then Mrs Ewens will arrange a virtual meeting with you all individually via Zoom so that you can at least see each other and talk through September.


Below are some important documents, some are for your information but some are for us here at school and we would appreciate it if you could kindly complete them and return them as soon as possible please.  If you experience any difficulties in downloading the documents, please ring school and we will post them out to you.


We are looking forward to getting to know all of our new children as well as our new families.

Thank you once again for choosing Northern. We feel extremely lucky to have been entrusted with nurturing your child on the next stage of their amazing journey.

My name is Mrs Ewens and I am your new teacher.
