Welcome to Kentisbeare School: 

 Reception Class 2021

A warm welcome to all families that have children starting at Kentisbeare School in Reception 2021. You may be a family already linked to our school or you may be new, but either way welcome to our school community and we are delighted that you have chosen Kentisbeare School for your child's education. 

To learn more about the learning opportunities, enrichment and curriculum provided in Reception at Kentibeare, please click the ‘Early Years’ tab on this school website. This page, New Reception Class of 2021, will continue to be updated regularly to hopefully provide you with as much information as possible for a smooth transition for your child into school life.

You should have received a welcome letter from us (which can also be found below) and an invitation to a ‘class dojo’ page, via email, which will be updated and checked regularly.

You will be able to contact Mrs Joyce (Head of School) and Miss Lunn (Early Years Leader) via the dojo page. You can also contact us by emailing either:

The school office is also open should you wish to speak to a member of staff: 01884 266330.

As a parent at Kentisbeare School, you are automatically part of our KSA (Kentisbeare School Association). The KSA are fantastic and continue to raise funds for our children throughout the school calendar year. So far this year they have provided educational workshops for children, music equipment and reading books just to name a few. Talk a look at the KSA tab on the website to find out more information and how you could get involved. 

The document below, what to expect when, is fantastic for seeing where your child is and the sorts of things we would be asking them to do at school. Take a look and see what you think, there might be a few activities there that you want to work on or have a go at and try at home.

Kentisbeare School : School Uniform 

Our school uniform colour is green. You can buy our uniform from Wovina by clicking here and choosing 'Kentisbeare School' or through Tesco. You can get your childs name embroidered under the logo; however we do ask that this is surname only. Children wear green school jumpers or cardigans along with a white polo top. Children can also wear green summer dresses, black or grey school pinafores, skirts, trousers or shorts. Children should also wear school shoes that are black, we do ask for no sandals please. For PE sessions, children have a green polo top, again you can get this embroidered with your childs surname on, black PE shorts and trainers (preferably not plimsoles- trainers are easier to run in). You can buy an optional PE hoodie if you wish. We do ask that every item of clothing in your child's PE kit is clearly named. The PE kit can then be brought into school and left on your child's peg in a named bag.
