New Starters 2022
On behalf of everyone at Churchfield Church School and Nursery, we would like to wish a warm welcome to our wonderful new co-hort of children who will be transitioning into Reception during the next academic year. It will be a real pleasure to get to know all of our lovely new and existing families that are joining us.
During the upcoming weeks and months ahead, we will use this space to share with you any information or updates about your child’s transition into Reception.
Dates for your diary
