Transition to Reception 2020

For parents of pupils joining Reception in September 2020, we have created this page to support the transition process.


Welcome to Nether Alderley!

We are delighted that you have chosen Nether Alderley Primary School for your child and we look forward to welcoming you into the school community over the up and coming months. 

Due to the coronavirus pandemic we are unable to send out a programme of transition dates and activities at this time. Instead we have created this page to support the transition process for you.

To help us get to know your child we usually aim to visit all children in their current setting. This year we appreciate that this may not be possible however we would still like to get in touch with your child’s current setting.

We have attached various files for your information, along with a number of different forms that we would be very grateful if you could complete and return to the school office.              

We have also included a welcome pack which gives lots of information on how to support your child getting ready for starting school. 

If you have any questions or would like any further information, please feel free to contact us. 

Our emails addresses are

We wish you and your child all the best over the coming weeks and look forward to welcoming you to Nether Alderley in the near future.
