The New School Year 2020-2021

Monday 6th July, 2020


Dear Parents and Carers,


I am delighted to let you know who your child/ren’s class teacher/s will be next academic year (2020-21).  We are anticipating that all children will be returning to school in September and, to support the children in their return, we have made the decision to keep the children with their current class teacher as much as possible.

We will have an INSET day for staff, as previously arranged, on Wednesday 2nd September and ALL children who currently attend Coppetts Wood, including those in the Early Years Foundation Stage who have a place at school next year, will begin on Thursday 3rd September.


If your child is currently in Years 1 to 6, they will begin their new school year in their new classroom with the teacher as stated in the table above.


If your child is currently in Reception, they will begin in September with Joanna in the Reception classroom on 3rd September before making a transition to the Year 1 classroom during the first weeks of the term.  Hollie McKay, who is joining Coppetts Wood, will work alongside Joanna initially before moving permanently into the Year 1 classroom during the week beginning Monday 14th September.


If your child is currently in our Nursery and has a place in Reception in September, they will also begin on 3rd September with Ruth in the Nursery classroom along with current Nursery children remaining in Nursery next year.  Any children who currently attend part time but are moving to a fulltime place will have their day extended gradually over a few days which will be agreed between Ruth and/or Joanna and parents and carers on an individual basis. 


Any children who do not currently attend Coppetts Wood but are joining Nursery or Reception in September will have a start date from Monday 14th September.  This will be shared with you at the Welcome Meetings this week.


We are very much looking forward to welcoming all children back into school.


With Best Wishes,


Kirstie Barrett

Head Teacher
