Early Years – Welcome Transition 2020

 

 
Mr Osborn, Interim Head of School

Welcome from Mr Osborn

It would usually be around this time that we would be welcoming our new entrants to their first play afternoon at Blenheim Primary School. These afternoons are a highlight for me and many members of our team, as it is a time full of excitement and curiosity – and that is just the parents! Unfortunately, due to the current climate, these sessions can’t happen right now, but, all being well, as advised in the letter I sent to you on the 10th July, we hope to welcome you and your child for our one to one meetings in September.  

We have created your own dedicated part of the school website not only for you to access information, but also to provide your child with stories being read by members of our staff. We hope that they can get to know some familiar faces and voices before they start in September. So, a virtual welcome to all of you, from myself and all of the Blenheim team, we look forward to welcoming you in person in September.

Hello and Welcome to Robins Class! We are very excited that you’re starting at our wonderful school and cannot wait to meet you. 

Your new school teacher is:

     Mr Taylor –    Class Teacher

Mrs Clark and Mrs Mee will be your Classroom Teaching Assistants and they will be able to help you in your new classroom.
