Starting Nursery and Reception September

Starting Nursery and Reception in September

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 important information and 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, introducing the staff, school uniform, important procedures and routines and timetable;
  • An invitation for your child to have a provisional 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
  • A Parent App registration form (an invaluable means of communicating with you)
  • Out of School visits / Emergency medical treatment consent form – contact information
  • 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 booklets with your child or take a look around our website.


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


With best wishes,

Jo Duffy, EYFS Lead
