New Starters September 2020

We are delighted you have chosen St Richard’s as the school for your child and the staffing team are all excited about September 2020 and meeting you all. We are writing to you with details of our planned induction to school and where you will be able to find documents relating to your child starting school.

All documents can be found below;

  • Video tour of St Richard’s
  • Parents information booklet
  • Transition booklet for children containing photos of staff and key areas in the classrooms
  • All about Me – Transition booklet for parents to complete for school
  • Suggested activities for preparing for school
  • A file of documents containing forms and information for registering your child at St Richard’s


We are planning and preparing for a September start for your children and the parents information booklet details our induction and dates for starting school. We will be writing to you individually with details of the groups in the coming weeks. Due to the current social distancing guidelines we may need to alter and tweak our plans as and when further information is published.

In the meantime please email Mrs Meek (Deputy Head) with any questions you may have.
