Starting School- Reception 2020

Welcome to Raysfield!  We are delighted your child will be joining our school in September. Firstly, we want to reassure you that whilst we are living in these unprecedented times, we will be doing everything we can to ensure your child has a positive start to school in September.

We are very much looking forward to meeting you all in person, unfortunately that is not possible now. Instead, we would like to encourage you to join a communication app we use called Class Dojo.

Class Dojo is a fantastic app that you can use on your phone or tablet. It is a great way of us sharing all the wonderful things that happen at Raysfield, send informal messages, pictures and communications between us. Class Dojo also links to our behaviour policy because we collect ‘dojo’ points when we are doing well and then celebrate weekly together in our House teams.  You have been sent an email, to the email address you provided when you applied for your place, inviting you to join Class Dojo.

Towards the end of May we will be sending you a new starter induction pack, in the meantime keep in touch using Class Dojo and have a read of our website so you know what to expect from us when you join our great Raysfield family.

We will keep you updated with our next steps over the coming weeks and we will send messages and pictures on Class Dojo of how we will be preparing for your child to have a great start to their education at Raysfield. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email us at or send an enquiry through the website.
