New Reception Intake 2021

This is information if your child has been allocated a place in our new Reception intake for September 2021. During the current government safety guidelines, we are not able to have our usual tours around the school as part of our induction process.

This page includes all the information that we feel may be useful in preparing for your child starting our school.  Please click the button below to view a photo gallery of our school, including our vast outdoor environment and our Early Years area.


Information about starting school

Normally, we would have held a parents’ meeting in the evening in July to explain our induction process and key information about the school. Instead, you should have received a message via the Parent App with a link to a Google Drive folder with all of our school information and a video presentation by our Reception teachers.


This page includes useful documents but all communication to parents takes place through our mobile Parent App. By giving permission for us to share your name, email address and mobile phone number with the app, we can send all information directly to your mobile phone. You should receive an email with instructions on how to do this.


Please click the links below to access key documents about the school using our Dropbox (documents can be downloaded). Most of which can be found on other pages of our website, but we have collated them here all in one place to make it easier for you.


At Kingsthorpe Village Primary School, we create individual ‘Learning Journeys’ for your child through a piece of educational software called ‘Tapestry.’ By logging on with a secure username and password you will be able to view all of your children’s observations, photographs and videos captured on our school iPads from their time in Reception.
