Reception Starters 2021 - Welcome to Lapal

We would like to take this opportunity to warmly welcome our September starters who are new to Lapal and to thank you all for choosing us as the school for your child. We are so happy that you chose our school for your learning journey and cannot wait to get to know you and watch you blossom.

Due to the nature of current circumstances, induction for our new children will have to look different at the moment and we are currently unable to offer our usual programme of induction meetings and visits into Lapal. However, should circumstances change, we will be in contact with you. We want to reassure you that we will be keeping you informed as we receive further information regarding school opening and how we will work together to help your child settle happily into school life. Rest assured that we are already thinking of you all and consider you a part of our school community.

For now, we would like to invite you to read the information below about our Early Years setting and how you can prepare your child for starting school. We will be providing further information over the coming weeks that you can share with your child, to show them their school environment, their classroom, some of the activities they might be doing when they join us and to give them a chance to meet their new teachers. We have also provided some frequently asked questions (FAQs).

Should you have any further questions or queries, please do not hesitate to contact the school office. 

Keep yourselves safe and smiling and we will be in touch very soon.
