Welcome to our Belmont family 

Dear Parents/Carers and our new children,

I would like to wish you all a very warm welcome to our Belmont family. I am delighted that you have chosen Belmont C of E Primary as your new Nursery/school and that our Nursery families have decided to continue their journey with us. My name is Mrs Harrison-Brown and I am very proud to be the Head Teacher of our lovely school.

I would normally meet all of our new families this term at school, and our teachers would also usually come to visit our new children’s current setting, but under the current circumstances, this will not be possible at the moment.

This year, transition for our Nursery and Reception starters is going to be a different from previous years. We are introducing some new ways to enable us to get to know each other. We are setting up a transition page on our school website:

You can find the transition page under the heading ‘Other’ tab on the main menu. It is called Transition 2020.

On this page, you will be able to find some useful information to help prepare your child for starting school. There will be videos of our school and classrooms, to help you see what school looks like. You will also be able to meet some of our staff and find out a little bit about them. There will also be some useful resources, which will help you and your child with transition to Nursery/school - for example BBC Bitesize Starting School.

Our Nursery and school uniform can be purchased from, Tots to Teams . You will have the option of delivery to your home address at an additional charge, or the option to get it delivered to school (we will contact you when it arrives to organise collection).
In due course, we will send you a pack including information about your child’s induction, a brochure and some admission forms. Please can we ask you to complete these forms and return to school. We will also arrange a suitable time with yourself, to view your child’s birth certificate.

I am really looking forward to meeting you all and helping you with a successful start to Nursery/school. If you have any questions for us, please email us at .

With my very best wishes,

Mrs K. Harrison-Brown

Head Teacher
