September 2020 Induction

Dear Parents and Carers


Usually at this time of year we would be inviting you to an induction meeting to tell you about life in our Reception classes so that you can start to prepare your child at home. Unfortunately, of course, we are unable to do that this year. We hope that our induction meeting slides will begin to answer some of your questions.


We will shortly be sending you by post our information booklet with lots more information about starting school. This booklet will also inform you of your child's class and teachers.


Next week we will be posting weekly stories and activities on Tapestry for your children too. If your child is not currently in our Nursery please make sure you return your Tapestry agreement and permission forms as soon as possible.


Please note, in order for your child to start school at Camelford Primary, we need the following forms returned. Thank you to all of you who have already done so.

Admissions form

Pupil premium



The school office also needs to have sight of your child's birth certificate before they start school.


Any queries, please contact us through our dedicated email address;


Best wishes


Mrs Finch, Mrs Egleton, Mrs Richards and Mrs Dingle
