Joining Reception Class
Reception Class - September 2021
The pandemic has really highlighted the quality of what we offer the children. Many of our parents have commented on the excellence of our education compared to those in the state system and other independent schools. We have been thrilled with the feedback and it proves that we truly do tailor the learning journey to the individual child.
Here are some comments from current parents:
‘The quality of the online lessons has far exceeded our expectations and is as good as it gets without being in the classroom. Our other son is getting nowhere near as much teaching and tutor time in his senior school- well done to you and all of your staff.’
‘Moving our child from the local state school was the best decision we ever made and more affordable than we thought. We wish we had done it years ago! The small class size, the subject teachers and really being known as an individual by the staff, has really helped our daughter to love school again. She is like a new child...thank you.’
‘Our child loves the school and can’t wait to get back after lockdown. He skips in every day. The staff are so lovely and parents are welcomed in. It really feels like a family.’
We were delighted to invite both internal and external parents to our Reception Class Information Evening, which was held on TEAMS on Thursday 4th March 2021 at 6.00pm.
This gave parents the opportunity to find out all of the exciting things we offer in Reception class and beyond. South Lee has a broad and exciting curriculum, firmly placing the children in the centre. You will get to meet the class teacher, as well as some of our specialist teachers. These include teachers of French, STEM (Science Technology, Engineering and Maths), Computing, Music, Art and Games.
If you missed this transition evening, please email the office with your preferred email address and we will send you the TEAMS link to watch the recorded event.
We are very happy to speak with you on an individual basis regarding your child’s future education and the opportunities that are on offer at South Lee. We would also be delighted to welcome you into South Lee for a visit as soon as restrictions are lifted. Please make an appointment through the office.
The deadline for an application to the Reception Class in September is Friday 26th of March.
There are government funded sessions available for your children up until the end of the term following their fifth birthday and the school Business Manager holds the information relating to this. If you are concerned about the cost of fees, there may be financial help available to you and we would be very happy to discuss the options.
