Reception New Starters

Dear Reception New Starter Parent/Carer


By now you will have received notification from the admissions team at the City of York Council that your child has been allocated a Reception class place with us in September 2020. We would like to take this opportunity to offer you a very warm welcome from us all at Knavesmire Primary School. We are really looking forward to meeting you and your family.


Normally, we would have organised a new starter meeting but under the current strange circumstances this is not going to be possible. We know that you will have lots of questions and queries however, so in the absence of a meeting, we've put together an Information Pack for you that you will have been sent by email.  


Please have a look through the Information Packs and also take a look at the the slides from the Powerpoint below that we would have normally shown you at our New Starter Meeting.


If you have any questions at all after looking through the information, please email them to the Reception Team directly: and they will endeavour to answer any queries in as much detail as possible.



In the meantime, we hope you and your family are well. We will be in touch with any further details regarding transition as soon as we have anything new to share. At present we are still very uncertain about what September will look like in school but as soon as we have clarity, we will share it with you.


Take care and stay safe.
