Reception New Starters 2020-21 

 Welcome to Hillside Primary School, your child has now secured a place for the academic year 2020/2021. Please look through our welcome booklet, this contains all relevant information to help both you and your child to transition into school. If you need any more information please email 


We will be talking to pre-school and nursery settings, as we always do, to find out where your  child is in their learning. We will also be talking to you directly to find out about your child's preferences; things they particularly enjoy, find difficult etc. These conversations usually take place within the context of a stay and play visit to school in July or a home visit in early September, however if this is not possible, due to the current situation, we will think creatively to ensure that we receive all of the information that we need about your child. You will hear from us soon to find out which class your child will be starting in September.
