Gilmour Infant School

Learning Together, Growing Together

Starting Gilmour September 2020

Starting Nursery and Reception in September 2020


A warm welcome to Gilmour Infant School.



We are very much looking forward to working in partnership with you, as your child begins their exciting journey with us.



We thank you all for your patience during these unprecedented times. Please be assured that we are working hard to ensure a smooth and safe transition in September.



You will shortly receive a pack containing some important information, as well as a number of documents that should be completed before your child starts school in September. You can look forward to:-

  • An invitation for parents to attend an online ‘zoom’ welcome meeting
  • A transition booklet which introduces the staff, school uniform, important procedures and routines 
  • A provisional invitation for your child to have a pre-start visit
  • A timetable of starting arrangements for September (subject to change following Government guidance)



Please return all completed forms to the school office at your convenience, but before the end of the school term (Monday 20th July 2020), namely:-

  • A Foundation Stage ‘All about me’ profile of your child
  • A ParentApp registration form (an invaluable means of communicating with you)
  • An Out of school visits / Emergency medical treatment consent form – Contact information
  • A Digital images permission form



Sadly, we are unable to invite you into school at the moment. Please share and talk about the information in the transition booklet with your child and take a look around our website.



We are really looking forward to meeting the children. Please keep checking the website for further updates.


Best wishes,


Joanne Duffy

Early Years Foundation Stage Leader
