Welcome to Reception

Mrs Harris, Mrs Southerton and Mrs Evans

We are looking forward to getting to know you and your family and helping your child settle into school life at Newton.

There are lots of ways to support your child through these exciting first weeks

for example: 

  • supporting your child's independence by encouraging them to organise their own belongings in the mornings
  • encouraging early bed times 
  • getting to school in time for the bell at 8.55 am
  • naming all items of clothing (including shoes) and water bottles 
  • talking to your child about their school experience (if they want to)
