For those families who are offered a place at Lambs Lane School for Reception in September we will try to give you as much information as we can to help your child start school successfully. Please bear in mind that the confirmed list of new starters is not sent over from Wokingham Borough Council until June. Once we have this list further information will be sent to parents.
The Reception Class will be in the Owls classroom, which has it's own outside play area and garden! It can be accessed from the main playground via a gate. This is where parents and carers drop off in the morning and pick up from after school.
New Parents meetings:
Unfortunately due to the Coronavirus Pandemic 2020/21 we are not able to hold our usual new parents meetings in school. These will be held virtually on Teams on Wednesday 7th July at either 1.30pm - 2.00pm or 6.00pm - 6.30pm. Invitations will be sent via email in due course.
New intake transition days:
Ordinarily we would arrange these towards the end of the Summer Term in July, but due to the current restrictions we are unable to hold these. On Friday 2nd July all our new starters and a Parent are invited to join us for a Teddy Bear's picnic from 2pm to 3pm (weather permitting) on the school field.
Doorstep visits from Miss Gascoyne will take place on Thursday 2nd and Friday 3rd of September. We will confirm appointments in due course.
The Owls will start school on Monday 6th September or Tuesday 7th September. We have staggered start times to ease the children in to their new class.

Our school milk scheme. Did you know our school has a school milk scheme?
By registering your child for our school milk scheme they will receive a 189ml (third of a pint) carton of semi-skimmed milk every day. This is delivered fresh and chilled to their classroom every day.
How much does it cost? Thanks to government subsidies, school milk is free for all under-fives and is subsided at around £15 a term for children aged five or older.
Why should I register my child? School milk provides your child with essential nutrients such as calcium and protein, for strong, healthy teeth and bones. It is also rehydrating and energy boosting, helping to bridge the long gap between breakfast and lunch so children stay focused.
How do I register my child? If your child is under five- Go to www.coolmilk.com or pick up a form from school. Just register by a Tuesday for your child’s free milk to start the following week.
