Welcome to Owls Class 2024

New Reception Parents 2024                                

Dear Parents/Carers

Further to your acceptance of a place for your child/children in our Reception Class for September 2024, I would like to welcome your family to Kingston St Mary Primary School. I am enormously proud of our school and look forward to meeting you and your child/children very soon.


You will soon receive your welcome pack and letter outlining details of your child's/children's Reception class. Please look on our website for my induction PowerPoint. Please show this to your child to help them to become familiar with the staff and routine.


On our school website, you will also find some useful resources to help prepare your child/children for starting in Owls class. I will be setting up a Dojo account for our class over the next couple of weeks. We will be able to use this for daily communications/photos etc.


I understand that starting Reception is a huge milestone for children and parents and I will aim to make the transition as smooth as possible in September. Our transition programme has been very well thought through and successful in past years. Our aim is for all children to settle in well, embrace their new environment and to feel happy and secure at school.

I understand that all children are different and have different needs. I will look at each child’s transition on an individual basis and work in partnership with you to ensure that your child is settled and happy at school.


Please do not hesitate to contact me, Mrs Jo Griffiths if you have any questions or queries. You can email me on alternatively you can call the school and I will get back to you.



I look forward to meeting you and your children soon.

Mrs Jo Griffiths
