Welcome to Lovelace 

We are delighted that you and your child will be joining our school family this year. This is the start of a new adventure that will be filled with exciting, emotional, joyful and nerve-wrecking moments - for all of us!! Our staff are here to support you and the information on our website and in your information packs will be able to answer many of the questions you have at the moment.

Unfortunately we haven’t been able to invite you into the school during the summer, so we have prepared some additional resources to welcome you to our school community.

A good place to start is to watch the video messages from Mr Meakin, our Headteacher and from me, Mrs Hopkins. Simply click on the images below. There is a transition book and slideshow of photos to show examples of the engaging activities and exciting events that your child will experience during the year that will enable them to explore, develop and extend their skills and knowledge. I hope you enjoy talking to your child about these. The class teams have prepared a welcome message and the class teachers have chosen a story to share with their new children. Sharing these with your child at home will help them feel more familiar with what to expect when they start either in Reception or Nursery in September.

If there is anything you feel you would like to ask us or speak with us about, please contact us. We are happy to help. 

I look forward to meeting you all in September.

Alison Hopkins
