New Reception Starters 2021
A big welcome to Manor Park Primary School. We are delighted that you have chosen to start your school life with us in September 2021.
Settling your child into school is incredibly important to us, to support this process we have put together some resources for you to share with your child.
Have a look at our wonderful Reception areas
It is often helpful to show young children videos or pictures to help them get an idea for what to expect when they start. We have put together a video of our Reception indoor and outdoor areas, please share and discuss this together.
