Welcome to Puffins, our Reception class. The class teacher is Mrs McColville and the Teaching Assistant is Mrs Bray.

The Reception classroom door will be open for children to arrive each morning from 8:35am until 8:50am. Any child arriving after this time will need to sign in at the school office as the register will have closed.

On arrival, children are encouraged to put their belongings away independently and begin their Early Morning Activity. Adults are available on the door and in the classroom to welcome and support the children during their arrival. 

Children can be collected from 3:15pm at the classroom door.

Polite request: Please ensure all items of school uniform and PE kit are labelled with your child's name.
