Our school community will provide a caring, safe and supportive environment where everyone is encouraged to be creative, challenged and happy in their work and play, and where the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) are respected and valued by all.
Starting Reception in 2022
We are delighted that your child will be joining our Reception class this year and we welcome you and your family on behalf of the whole school community.
It is important that we receive all relevant information/completed forms prior to the start of school in September. Please find further information/links on how to order e.g. school uniform below. Please get in touch with us via the school office if you have any additional questions.
Even though your child will receive free school meals under the Universal Infant Free School Meal Funding, we would appreciate if you could complete Merton's Pupil Premium and Free School Meals application form. Any qualifying family who registers their eligibility by completing this form will help raise money for the school. Find out more here.
