Welcome to Bentinck Primary & Nursery School. Together we make a difference. We Start back to school on Wednesday 20th April 2022

Starting School in September 2021

Starting School at Bentinck


We understand that starting school is a very big step in a young child's life. It can also be a big step for their Parents and Carers too.  Unfortunately, due to Covid, we have been unable to put in place the usual transition activities that we normally do to welcome new children and their families into our school. 

All Reception children will start school on Thursday 2nd September at 9.00am. Please access the school premises via the school gate on Birkin Avenue and walk along the path on to the school playground. The staff will meet you there. All children will need to be collected at 11.45am. Please enter the school via the same gate to collect your child at lunch time. We operate a one way system and you will need to leave via a different gate on the playground. Please don't worry, there will be staff around to direct you. We are asking all our families to wear a face covering on our school premises in September to ensure we all keep safe.

The children will continue to do mornings only up to, and including, Friday 10th September. Starting on the week beginning Monday 13th September children will begin to stay for a full day. Your child's first full day is stated on the letter that was posted/given to you. Don't worry - we have all these dates in school.

As an Early Years Team we are really looking forward to meeting all the new children in the Reception class. Your child's new class is called Class R.

We hope you all have a lovely summer holiday. Stay safe and well.
