Reception Information ’21

Dear Parents / Carers,  


We are delighted your child is joining St. Gabriel’s RC Primary this coming September.  On behalf of our Staff and our Governors, it gives me great pleasure to welcome you and your family to our school community.  


We have prepared an information pack which will be available to collect from the school office from 8:45 am on Friday 18th June.  


We hope that the information in this pack will answer many of the questions that you have about your child starting school with us in September. We will be providing further information about your child’s start in Reception in a virtual Teams meeting on Friday 25th June at 3:30pm – please have your pack to hand for reference.  


To access the meeting please click on the link in the invite emailed to you. If you are using a web browser, the meeting can run without any additional downloads. However, please ensure that if you are using a mobile device that you have downloaded the Microsoft teams app.  

Note: We ask that you reply to the text requesting the email address for which you would prefer the virtual meeting invite to be sent.  


Following Health and Safety advice, we are going to have a ‘Meet and Greet’ session for our future pupils outside this year. Please join us at our school gates at 3:30pm on Thursday 1st July for half an hour. Unfortunately this session is for children only due to the operational guidance set out for us by the Welsh Government and Newport Local Authority Health and Safety team. If you are waiting for the ‘Meet and Greet’ to start, please queue along our fence with each household at a different fencepost to ensure that we are adhering the social distancing guidelines.  


Though not in real life until September, the children will be able to see their classroom through a filmed tour their teacher, Miss Foster, is creating. The link for this will be texted to you. 


Next steps: 

  • Collect information pack from school office prior to the virtual meeting (available from 18.6.21) 
  • Reply to text with the details of your preferred email 
  • Put the virtual meeting (3:30pm 25.6.21) and the Children ‘Meet and Greet’ (3:30pm 1.7.21) in your diary! 


If there is anything you need in the meantime, please do get in touch. We look forward to meeting you virtually on the 25th June. 


Yours sincerely, 


Mrs M. Harris
