Admission Pack - Reception 2021-22

Tuesday 20th July 2021

Dear Parents and Carers,

We are delighted that you will be joining our SMSJ family and we would like to take this opportunity to warmly welcome you to our all-through school.  We look forward to working in partnership with you to ensure that your child has the best possible start to their primary phase education.

We believe that choosing your child's first school is a hugely important decision, setting them on the path of a wonderful learning journey and onto future success.  At SMSJ, we do everything we can to ensure our families are fully informed about the journey ahead; the curriculum that will be taught, the approach to teaching in the Foundation Stage, as well as the practical arrangements of starting school.

Normally at this point in the year, we are gearing up to welcome our new families into our school to look around our Reception class, the rest of the school, meet our team and learn more about our unique offer here at SMSJ.  However, given the current COVID-19 restrictions, we have tweaked how we are able to do this to ensure you are able to get to know us and the school, whilst also safeguarding the health and wellbeing of your family and our school community.

We have a reputation as a welcoming and nurturing school and Miss Corkill is our Early Years Leader who ensures that all our Early Years children are happy, safe and learning well. Your one to one parent teacher meeting will take place in September (details of timings will be sent to you separately). Please come to the main school office at Neale House where you will be asked to sign in.  We will then direct you to the appropriate Reception classroom for your meeting.            

  • Thursday             9th September                   Reception pupils attend SMSJ 8:40am - 11:30am
  • Friday                   10th September                Reception pupils attend SMSJ 8:40am - 11:30am
  • Monday               13th September                 Full-time hours 8.40am - 3.10pm

Please visit our website and our Twitter page to find out more about our fabulous school; we work extremely hard to keep everything up to date, sharing all of the amazing learning that takes place each term. The online admission pack can be found at the bottom of this page.

Do not hesitate to contact our Admissions Officer at for any additional queries you may have concerning your child’s start at SMSJ.

Yours sincerely,

Simon Atkinson                                                                Lynsey Corkill
