Welcome to our 'New Starters' page.
Welcome to Raunds Park Infant School. This page is for the parents and children who will be joining the Reception Class in September. However, some of the information will be useful for children joining our school in other year groups.

Welcome to Raunds Park Infant School
We want to wish a very warm (if virtual) welcome to Raunds Park Infant School to all our new families. We are very pleased your child will be joining us in September 2021. This is a very unusual time for us, and we are having to think carefully about how to safely welcome our new families to school. During June and July our priorities will be getting to know you and your child a little bit and giving you opportunities to start to get to know us and the school.
Welcome to Reception
We have created this page just for you and we hope you will find it really useful. We have included videos and photos, for you to view with your child including: a virtual tour of the Reception area and an introduction to each of the teachers as they read a story for your child. We will email you to let you know of additional information as we update this page. We have two reception classes that work very closely together sharing access to all the classrooms and mixing during independent learning time. Your child will know which class they are in by June. The experience is consistent across Reception with the teaching staff working as one team.
Foundation Stage Lead and Class Teacher
We are proud of our school and uniform, please follow the link to the uniform page on our website. This gives detailed information of the uniform and a link to our supplier.
"As a mum of three children buying uniform can get quite expensive but from experience I know how much fun, and how mucky, children get in Reception so I like to have more than one of each item just in case something needs to be put in the wash!” Aimee Fearns,
