Reception New Starters

Welcome to Great Barton C of E Primary Academy.  We are very much looking forward to meeting your child and to working with you towards a happy settling in period.  We appreciate the time and energy that you have invested in your child’s education thus far and will be happy to address any issues that may impact upon your child’s integration into the school.  If there are any safeguarding concerns, or your child has any special educational needs then please get in touch to let us know and send us copies of any relevant paperwork.


This year, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we have had to adapt our usual transition.  Normally we would have a face-to-face welcome meeting with the parents, which would enable you to meet the relevant staff and ask any questions.  However, with new social distancing rules in place, most things have now been done online and therefore please click the documents below which include all of the information you will need.




** Book bags will be available to purchase for £4.00 from the School Office on 6th September ** 


If you have any concerns please do not hesitate to contact us, you can call the school between 8.30am and 3.30pm, or email the school office.


Welcome to Owl Class. 

Please find some transition activities below for you to complete and bring with you on your first day in school. The Owl Class familiarisation booklet and One Page Profile will be emailed to you.

Look forward to meeting you all in September.
