Welcome Meeting for parents of new Reception Children



Reception New Starters September 2019


I have great pleasure in welcoming you and your child to Kader Academy. This is a very exciting time in your child’s school journey and we would like to ensure their transition is as smooth as possible. We have therefore arranged a number of events for you and the children that are outlined below.


Welcome Meeting

I would like to invite you to an induction meeting which will be held at Kader Academy at 10:30 on Friday 5th July.  The meeting is an opportunity for you to find out more about Kader and to meet members of the Academy’s Foundation Stage Team who will be working with your child over the next academic year.  


School Meal Tasters

Prior to your child starting full time education in September, we would like to give you and your child the opportunity to sample a school meal at lunch time. Lunch is served at 11.30am and will be available for you and your child to try on one of the following dates:

Thursday 4th July

Friday 5th July

If you would like to attend the meeting, and would like to order a school dinner on one of the above days, please contact the Academy’s office on 01642 286599 by the 7th June. The cost of school lunches are £1.90 for children and £3.10 for adults (please note as the school does not accept cash you will need to pay using a credit/debit card). However once in school, lunches are not currently chargeable until children are in Y3.

Unfortunately toddlers cannot be accommodated.


Trial Morning in School – Monday 15th July

On Monday 15th July we will be providing the children with an opportunity to experience a trial morning in school. On this day, the children should arrive at the external doors of the Reception classroom, located in the Early Years outside area, at 8.50am.  The doors can be accessed by using the path at the side of Nursery’s outdoor area which leads to the Lower School playground (If you are unsure please contact the Academy’s office team beforehand). You will then leave your child with their new class teachers for the morning. This will be a great starting point and we hope it will give the children a feel for life in Reception before starting next year.


If you would like your child to take part in the transition morning please complete the form below to confirm your child’s attendance. We do hope your child is able to attend. The Early Years staff look forward to meeting your child.       


Once you have completed the form below please contact the School Office on 01642 286599.


I do hope you are able to attend the events and I look forward to meeting you.

Yours sincerely,


Mrs L Chalk
