Reception intake September 2022
Hello! And a warm welcome to our new families and children!
We are really looking forward to welcoming all of our new reception children this year, and we can't wait to get to know you and see how you will blossom and grow during your time at Bleak Hill Primary School!
This section of our website is especially for you. It will provide you with the information and support on how to make your child's transition to Primary school as smooth as possible as we change and adapt from the current restrictions.
In the coming weeks we will be uploading messages from our Reception class teachers, posting activities for you and your child to complete at home as well as providing parental information. Please check our website regularly for update and videos.

Our Reception children will be based in our brand new EYFS facility and we are excited to welcome the children to their new classrooms in September. We will be visiting the children in their nursery and childcare setting. During this visit we will be able to meet the children in an environment they feel happy, safe and secure.
Virtual Reception Induction
This year we are going to build on the success of our virtual inductions. There will be videos of each of the new class teacher introducing themselves and reading some stories. The videos are a great opportunity for parents and children to watch together as many times as you like. Children will begin to get to know their new teachers and see their new school. We will also be a tour of the school and a current reception classroom.
Our aims of our virtual induction
¨ We want new families to feel a warm welcome to Bleak Hill.
¨ We want to give families an opportunity to visualise the school setting and get a glimpse into life at Bleak Hill and the Reception Year.
¨ We want to give families the opportunity to share any worries, concerns, and excitement, and ask questions as they would in a face-to-face induction;
¨ We want some level of two-way communication, not just school giving information;
¨ We want to help children to start to feel familiar with the Reception environment;
¨ Most of all, we want families and children to feel a sense of belonging to the Bleak Hill community.
