New Arrivals

Welcome to Loddon Primary Federation!

Reception Intake – September 2021

Welcome to our school! We are delighted that your child will be joining our Reception class in September 2021, and we very much look forward to working with your family.  

We would like to invite you to visit the school on Wednesday 14 July, any time between 9.30am and 11am for a drop-in which will be for about 15 minutes.  During this time you will have an opportunity to meet staff, see the classrooms and visit the EYFS area.  

Please email the Reception team at if there is any important information about your child that we should know before they arrive.

Please could you also email a photo of your child to the Year R team as soon as is convenient.  We would like to have a picture of them to put on their pegs.  Please email them to Your child’s class and teacher will be sent out on Friday 9 July.

You can also contact the office with any queries you may have at or visit our website

During the Summer Term, staff will visit Nurseries to meet your children and start the transition.

All children will have the opportunity to begin full-time in September, after our settling in period (see details below).  However, from past experience we would recommend the younger children in the year group (those particularly born between May and August), beginning mornings only, transferring to all day after October half-term.
