New YR Transition 2023

Welcome to the Reception Class 2023 - 2024

Thank you for confirming your child's place at school. We are looking forward to getting to know you and your family during your years with us at Saint Osburg's. 


We are hosting our New Parents Welcome Meeting on Wednesday 21st July at 9am. Please come to the white doors at the top of the church carpark and you will be welcomed by a member staff into school. Your child does not need to attend this meeting. During this meeting you find out about your child's transition into school and if necessary book your child's home visit. 


On Monday 10th July your child is invited to a 'Stay and Play' session with their new Reception class and teacher. 

If your child does not already attend our school Nursery, please arrive promptly at the school office by 9.15am. You can collect your child back at the school office at 10.45am. 


On this page you will find welcome packs, online presentations, classroom tours, meet the staff videos, story times and getting ready for school activities. 


I hope you find all the content helpful and informative - if you do have any questions please call the school office on 02476227165
