Welcome to Reception
Welcome to Dosthill Primary Academy
I hope that you and your child have received their letter welcoming you to our school, which also outlined our new website page.
I would like to say again how delighted we are that you have chosen to join our school. We know how special and exciting this next chapter for your child will be.
Please enjoy sharing the pictures and information within this section of our website with your child so that they can become familiar with our school environment and the adults who work here. Each week, we will add new information about an aspect of school life such as classrooms, uniform, lunchtime, a typical school day, meet the staff, useful activities at home.

Inside our school
We hope that you enjoyed looking at the photographs of the Reception classroom and outdoor areas last week.
We would now like to share some photographs of key areas around our school that you will use whilst at school.
Assembly and Dining Hall
Here is a photograph of our School Hall; we get up to lots of exciting things in this area ranging from indoor PE, having lunch and going to assembly. In the summer holidays, the hall is being decorated and we are having new curtains so it will look superb when you start school.
This is a photo of the corridor that you will walk down from your classroom to the hall. We walk on the left side and you can look at the lovely learning on display too.
This outdoor area is just next to the hall. In the summer, you may get chance to eat your lunch outside for a change to the hall.
This is our Computer Suite. You will go to lessons here with your teacher and learn lots of wonderful things to improve your skills in this subject
