Reception intake September 2024

We are firming up our plans to welcome new families to Glenmead in readiness for September 2024. 

All families should have received notification of which school their child will be attending and should have accepted the offer of a school place in order to secure it. 


Our induction morning for children starting in Reception in September 2024 is on the morning of

Friday 21st June 2024.

We will contact families and provide more detail of the arrangements in due course. 


We plan to visit every family at home between 1st and 9th July 2024.  

We have an information sharing workshop for parents of our new Reception starters 5:30  - 6:30 on Wednesday 10th July. This workshop will be presented by Louise Herbert from Insightful Beginnings. 


Concise, clear communication. 

We are encouraging our new families to sign up to Class Dojo, as it is our most popular means of communication with our parents. An invite to Reception 24 Class Dojo page has been sent out to all our new families. Existing parents with older children already at Glenmead, still need to accept the invite to the Reception 24 Dojo page to gain access to it. 


Class Dojo allows families to gain a fascinating insight into their child's school experience as well as allowing you to communicate with school quickly and easily. 


We will also introduce our families to our meal ordering system: School Food United. You can find out more information by clicking School Meals on the content list.



If you have any questions about your child starting school, please don't hesitate to contact us on:
