Elm Class New Starters 2021/22
Hello and welcome to Elm Class!
We are so pleased that you have chosen Dovecot Primary School to begin your child's school journey and look forward to working with you.
At present due to covid restrictions we are unable to hold an on site transition meeting for Reception new starters, however parent packs have been sent out and will be with families shortly. The main class page, meet the staff, and parent information subpages also contain a wealth of information you may find useful. If you are in need of any further information before your parent pack is received, you can also phone the main office and either ask them, or ask to leave a message for Mrs Dornan, I will then contact you at the next earliest convenience.
For uniform, we use West Derby School Wear (WDSW). This year we are strongly recommending tracksuit pants for EYFS (particularly at the beginning of the year) as they are perfect for outdoor and play based learning, as well as supporting the children with independent toileting. These are available in the school colours from WDSW, or in black or dark grey from most supermarkets. If you prefer school trousers/skirt and tights, please practice any clips and zips on these with your child before starting, thank you. We are also asking that children wear velcro fastening shoes, not laces.
