A very warm welcome to Hazlemere C of E School and the Early Years Foundation Stage September 2020-2021.
Dear Parents and Carers,
Welcome to the Autumn Term in Reception. For those families new to Hazlemere C of E, welcome to our school community. Firstly, thank you to all the Parents who joined in with the Zoom meetings.
This information gives us an understanding of your child and this will help us to plan your child’s learning. I would like to say how impressed we have been with how quickly the children have settled this week into their Reception class. They have been very busy getting to know new friends, adjusting to different routines and exploring both the inside and outdoor areas. In the class I am supported by Mrs Lyle as the class Teaching Assistant. In addition, we will have Miss Eastman & Mrs Kiran to work with the children in the afternoons.
We use Tapestry and school emails as a way of communication and also sharing your child’s learning in school. We would appreciate it if you could also use Tapestry to record any wow moments or events at home.
There was a Phonics /Writing session for parents to attend last week and was held via zoom. If you require additional phonics information, please do email us via the school office. Reading books will be sent out in the next few weeks once the children are settled into the routines. These will be changed on Monday and Thursday.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to speak to me or any member of the team by booking a time for a call or zoom via the school office. We are restricting face to face communication at the moment. If you do have anything that you would like to know that has not already been addressed, please feel free to contact us via the school office.
The Reception Team are looking forward to working with you and your child/children over the coming year and if you have any worries or concerns please do not hesitate to contact us.

There are 4 key principles that underpin our practice in the Early Years at Hazlemere C of E.
A Unique Child We recognise that all children are different. We identify and celebrate their strengths and support their areas for development.
Positive Relationships Our pupils interact well with each other and with the adults in the school. We encourage parents to be involved with their child's education.
Enabling Environments Our indoor and outdoor areas encourage exploration, investigation and independent learning. Our displays and resources are well maintained and reflect current learning.
Learning and Development Pupils achieve well and make good progress from their starting points. Learning is playful, practical and purposeful and builds upon prior attainment. Our children enjoy coming to school.
