Hillside First School

Starting School

Welcome to Hillside First School

We are delighted that your child will be joining our school’s Reception team in September and we are looking forward to getting to know them.

This page will contain all the information concerning your child starting school.  Starting school should be a happy and exciting time for both your child and for you.  We know that you will have lots of questions to ask us and hope the information here will begin to answer at least some of those questions.

We hope to be able to invite you to our ‘New Parents Evening’ in June 2022 where you will be able to meet the teaching staff, visit the classroom and find about the day to day arrangements of starting Reception.  Click here to find out all about a day in the life of a reception child

Please do not hesitate to talk to us if you have any further questions.

We look forward to welcoming you to our school community.
