New Starters September 2019

Welcome to Lambs Lane School!

For those families who have been offered a place at Lambs Lane School for September 2019 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.


Useful Dates.

New Parents meetings will be held in school on:

Tuesday 2nd July at 6.30pm - this meeting is aimed at Parents who already have children in school. Uniform will be available to view (both new and pre-loved.)

Thursday 4th July at 9.30am - this meeting will include a tour of the school for anyone who has not previously visited and will give you the opportunity to view uniform (both new and pre-loved.)


New intake transition days:

Tuesday 9th July 1.15pm to 3.15pm. Drop off and pick up at the Owls Garden.

Wednesday 10th July 9.30am to lunch time. Parents are invited to eat lunch with their child, and try out a school dinner.


The class teacher will visit any children in a setting (e.g. pre-school or nursery) before the end of the Summer Term. Home visits with any child not attending a setting will take place in week commencing 2nd September.

The Reception class will start school on either Monday 9th September or Tuesday 10th September. We stagger start times to help children familiarise themselves with the classroom and settle in.



You will be able order your child's uniform at the new Parents meetings or straight after. Pre-loved uniform will also be available for you to buy at these meetings. We will try to have any ordered uniform available ready for collection on the transition days.


Breakfast and After School Club.

We offer both before and after school wrap around care. If you are interested in using this service, you may want to register your child before September. All the information you need can be found here: Click Here


Travelling to School.

We operate an informal one-way system to try and manage congestion outside school both in the morning and afternoon. Click here to see how it works.

There are many benefits to walking, cycling or scooting to school. Read more here.

New starter welcome letters will be sent out to families by Wednesday 19th June.

The Reception Class Teacher has now booked in to visit all children who attend a setting (nursery, preschool or childminder.)
