Starting Reception 2024

We are delighted that you are considering sending your child to Lark Hill Community Primary School in September 2024.
On behalf of the staff, children, parents, carers and governors, I would like to welcome you and your family to Lark Hill Community Primary school and hope that you will soon feel part of our school community.

Starting somewhere new can be a worrying and uncertain time so we have created this page to answer some of your questions and to give you some general information about how our school and EYFS classes work. 

We understand that your child starting school  is a very important step which can be daunting. Therefore, if you require any support, please do not hesitate to contact us using the following email address:

Please remember that we are always here to work with you as you support your child to get the best education they can.

We do lots of enjoyable and messy activities in Reception, and inevitably the children will get dirty. We ask that parents and carers provide a spare set of clothes which must stay on your child’s peg. These clothes do not have to be uniform, but they allow us to easily change your child should they have an accident or get wet. The clothes should be in a carrier bag labelled with your child’s name (no rucksacks, please) Please also supply a change of underwear, in case of ‘accidents’.

The school uniform for Lark Hill is as follows:
Purple sweatshirt or cardigan
White polo top or white shirt (non-logo)
Grey or black trousers or skirt
All black school shoes or all black trainers
In the summer purple gingham dresses can be worn
Jeans or fashion trousers are not allowed
No logos on uniforms except for the school logo
No large bows in hair
Stud earrings only and a watch. No hoops or necklaces
