Reception 2022 Intake

The Early Years Foundation Stage team at St. Mary's C of E Academy would like to warmly welcome our new 2022 cohort of children and families. 


We are delighted with the way that the children have taken the start to school in their stride and we now have so many independent children coming through the gates each morning. Our classes are full and within just a week the children are settling so well into routines. 


We are spending our time in school getting to know the children and observing their interests and completing the DfE Baseline.

By the end of the half term we will be able to give you more information and talk about your childs journey to reach the Early Years Early Learning Goals.


Please make sure your Tapestry log in is working as this is our main point of contact. 


If you have any questions for your teachers please email:


If you have any questions for the office please email


If your child is ill you can let us know via Pupil Asset or via the office email. Please remember for sickness or diarrhoea allow 48 hours.


Please make sure your Pupil Asset account is up and running as this is how you will order lunches.


For planning please visit the Children's tab and our class page. 


We are in exceptional times and we are certainly learning to be flexible and patient.



With best wishes


Mrs Rutter and Miss Bean
