Happiness and Courage

Welcome to Blakesley Hall Primary School Reception. This is the Foundation Stage of your child’s education with us and we are looking forward to working with you and your child over the coming years.

During this important year your child will be taught by class teachers:

  • Miss Ali (RA) - Year Group Leader
  • Miss Thorne and Mrs Boora (RBT)
  • Miss Virdee (RV)

Supported by teaching assistants:

  • Mrs Ali
  • Mrs Dunmore
  • Mrs Crisp
  • Mrs Kour
  • Mrs Wilson
  • Mrs Saraj

We aim to provide a safe, stimulating learning environment as we believe all children deserve the best possible education and support to fulfil their potential.

Hopefully we will provide the foundations for your child to become independent, self-motivated and equipped with the skills needed for future school life.

PE will take place:

  • RA – Thursday afternoon
  • RBT – Tuesday morning and Friday morning
  • RV – Monday afternoon and Wednesday afternoon
