Reception 2021 New Starters

Welcome to Reception at Wharton CE Primary School.

We have created a special video for you to watch with your children. Why not sit down with them and familiarise yourselves with the school, the route to the classroom and the facilities they will look forward to using when they join our school family in September.



Due to the extension of the current lockdown restrictions and the current spike of the Delta Variant of Covid-19 in the Northwich and Winsford area, we are changing the dates for the two stay-and-play sessions for your child.

The sessions originally planned for 30th June and 7th July have now been cancelled along with the parent meeting on 14th July. The parent meeting will be re-scheduled for September 2021, date to be confirmed.

If your child is currently in Start Well Learning, we are now inviting him/her for a stay-and-play session on Friday 2nd July 2021 from 1:45pm until 2:45pm

If your child is currently attending Growing Minds, Sunrise, Hartford Manor or has a childminder, we are inviting him/her on Friday 9th July 2021 from 1:45pm until 2:45pm

You will have already received an invite by email for the session that your child is invited to attend.


We are delighted to have your child starting with us in September 2021 and look forward to welcoming them into our school family, as they start their exciting school journey with us.

As you will be aware, we are still working within a number of restrictions due to the Covid pandemic which means that the transition into our school will be a little different. We do hope, however, that as restrictions are lifted we will be in a position to offer parents and children the opportunity to come and look at our fabulous school. This will include taking part in settling-in sessions for the children during the Summer Term (June/July) and a meeting for parents.

Keep checking this page for updates, and once we have your email addresses we will make contact with you regarding transition arrangements.

Very Best Wishes

Alyson Thompson (Deputy Head & EYFS Lead).
