Reception 2020 - Induction

At Adel St John the Baptist C of E Primary School our aim is a secure environment strongly rooted in Christian values.
Our vision is rooted in the words of Jesus:

‘You must love each other, just as I have loved you. By this, everyone will know that you are my disciples' (John 13:34-35)

In this sense, love infuses the very life of our school, underlying our every action and every relationship. Through this vision, we aim to provide:

  • the highest quality teaching and learning for all children, developing them intellectually, socially, morally, physically and spiritually.
  • a Christian environment that is open, inclusive, safe, stimulating and caring.
  • inspirational education enabling children to reach their full potential as responsible citizens and valued members of their community.

Welcome to our school - we are looking forward to meeting you and your children

In the light of ‘Lockdown’ the transition programme will be ever evolving. Any specific dates will be made available to you as soon as possible. We are working on how we can provide you with material that is helpful and informative during these difficult times as we want to ensure that your child feels happy and confident to start school.

You will find a great number of documents to download from personal development and activities to wider school life information. If you have any questions regarding these please contact the school office.
