‘Let your light shine before others, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven’ (Matthew 5:13)

Reception new starters - September 2021



A very big welcome to all our new children, parents & carers who will be joining Highfield St. Matthew's CE Primary School in September and also our Highfield family too!

Normally, we hold an Induction Evening in school during the summer term for our children starting Reception classes in the September.  However, due to the on-going Covid pandemic and current restrictions in place, we are unable to do so.  

Parents and Carers should have already received a welcome pack with lots of information and a range of forms to complete. If you haven't already received this pack please contact the School Office on 01942 747818 and we can assist you. 

Please find below lots of information which will hopefully answer any questions you may have. We hope that you will take the opportunity to view the rest of our school website and our virtual tour of our Nursery and Reception. https://www.highfieldsaintmatthews.wigan.sch.uk/ 


Before the end of term, we will contact Parents and Carers again with further information regarding your child's new teacher and starting arrangements.



Also below are links to several forms.  Parents/carers will need to complete ALL the forms and return these to the School Office before the end of June 2021. 


We have uploaded some further information about Early Years (Nursery & Reception) and how the curriculum is delivered, which we hope you may find useful too! 


We have our own Reception Twitter page. Please follow us to see some of the wonderful things we do in school.  (Click on the link below.)
