Starting Reception in September 2021

Welcome to the class page for children starting our Sebright Reception from September 2021.

Over the next few weeks, we will be adding information and details to this page to make the transition into school as smooth and enjoyable as possible!

First up we have our current reception children guiding you through our learning environment. Look out for a video very soon from our Head of School introducing all of the Reception Teachers!

Virtual Tour

The First Week at Sebright!

The first day at Sebright Reception for all the children will be on Monday 6th September 2021.

Children will stay until 11:30 on Monday and Tuesday, 1:00 on Wednesday and Thursday and then until 3.30pm on the Friday.

This transition timetable enables the children to process and digest each day as it comes and gradually get used to the new routines of the school day. When you pick your child up, please do speak to them about what they did in the day and how they are feeling. Discussions with your child’s teacher at the beginning and end of the school day will help this transition period run smoothly.

Daily activities throughout this first week will involve plenty of opportunities to learn though play in our indoor and outdoor classrooms. There will be chances for the children to learn everyone’s name in the class and navigate around the school building with their teachers.

From the Wednesday, they will stay for lunch and experience school dinners together.  All children at Sebright have freshly prepared school dinners. Reception children receive funded school dinners up until the end of Year 2. Take a look at our current menu.

We do encourage all parents to check their Free School Meal eligibility as it provides additional funding that will benefit your child. You may apply through Hackney Education.
