Starting school in September 2020 - essential information

Welcome to Writtle Infant School! We're so glad that you and your children will soon be part of our school. Things are very different this year and there is a lot that we still don't know about how schools will re-open in September. Please make sure you that you have logged into ParentMail and Tapestry and that you read the Uniform, Health and Wellbeing, School Meals and The School Day pages on our website. This is the most important information to help you and your child get ready for September. There are further links on the right which should answer any other questions you may have. Otherwise please contact us if there is anything else you are unsure about.

Getting ready for school

We will soon write to you to let you know if your child will be in Foxes class with Mrs. Fisk, or Squirrels class with Mrs. Giles, as well as a personalised induction timetable for your child.

  • Please look at the information listed on the right.
  • Fill in the All About Me sheets from the welcome pack that will be sent to you. We will let you know a safe way of sending us this information.
  • Take a look at PACEY's Steps to Starting School.
  • Have a go at TLC Essex's list of 50 things to do before you're 5!
  • We also recommend What to expect, when? by Action for Children. You can buy a printed copy at their website.
  • Ask your child's nursery/pre-school for their reports. These can be e-mailed to us.
  • The most important thing you can do to get your child ready for school is to read stories with them and talk to them about anything and everything! 

We look forward to seeing you all again soon!
