New Reception Parent Information
A warm welcome to Kyson Primary School.
This area of the website is specifically for our new Reception parents and their children and contains information about transition to starting, activities, uniform purchase, lunch ordering and more!
Welcome to Reception
Please find below a presentation that introduces children to Kyson including some of the adults they will meet when they start and a sneaky peek at the classrooms.
You can download the presentation by clicking here.
Copy of all letters sent out to date can be found below.
Activities and Advice around Starting School
Please find a booklet about preparing children for school developed by the Professional Association for Childminders and Early Years:
A full list and photos of the Kyson uniform can be found here.
Please note that all ordered items, subject to stock availability, will be ready to collect from the school office from the week commencing 29th June between 8.30am to 3.30pm daily. It would be appreciated if you could please bring the exact money or cheque (made payable to "Kyson Primary School") in a named, sealed envelope.
Children come to school in September in their winter uniform.
School Lunches and ParentPay
All children in Reception are entitled to a free school lunch under the Government's Universal Infant Free School Meals policy. Parents order these lunches using ParentPay.
Shortly after your child starts in Reception, you will receive a letter containing your child's ParentPay activation code which will allow you to order lunches going forward. During the interim period children will be served an appropriate hot lunch.
Further information about lunchtimes, the ordering process and school menu can be found here.
Staying in Touch
Kyson now has it's own mobile App which is free and easy to download. The App ensures that you receive alerts from the school and are able to access key information at all times. Full information about downloading the App can be found here.
Once your child starts in September you will receive an email or text notification asking you to register with ParentMail. We currently use ParentMail (alongside the App) to send out newsletters and other communications. It is therefore important that you register your account with ParentMail.
