Ember Class Reception


Welcome to Ember Class!

Hello everyone!

We are so excited that you will be joining Westbourne and are looking forward to meeting you very soon. We would normally invite our new Reception parents to a welcome meeting in July but unfortunately, due to the Covid 19 pandemic, we are unable to do that this year. Instead, please take a look at the information on this page which we would normally have shared with you at the meeting.


By now, you should have received a letter giving times and dates for our ‘Stay and Play’ sessions along with your child’s date to start school.

Please note that these dates might have to change depending on the government advice we are given regarding the opening of schools in September. We will contact you if these dates have to change.


‘Stay and Play’ sessions give you and your child the opportunity to meet the staff, other children and parents. It also allows you and your child to spend time playing together in the new learning environment. This year, we won’t be making home visits, so these sessions will also be used for us to find out more information about your child, their needs and interests.


We would be very grateful if you could fill in the ‘All about Me’ booklet below and bring it with you to your child’s ‘stay and play’ session, thank you
