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.

Here is a short video message from Mrs Keay

Our School 

Here is a photograph of the front of our school. We can’t wait for you to start school with us in September. You will walk to the Reception classes from either this gate or the gate by the main office.

This is a photograph of our logo by our main office and entrance which you may pass on you way in to school each day.

Here are some photographs of the Reception classrooms and displays. You will have lots of fun learning inside and outside.


The teachers will also set up lots of lovely learning activities for you to take part in outside. This is where you will also play after your lunch.



Care Club Information

Our wrap around care is provided within the security of the school building.Qualified staff plan a variety of activities for the children to participate in ranging from baking and craft, to team building challenges and sports.

​Our breakfast club opens at 7:30 am and closes when school starts at 8:45 am. A choice of healthy breakfast options are available every day from our catering team. Children from nursery to year 5 are escorted to their classrooms by the same member of staff each day, to ensure consistency and familiarity. Staff are then able to pass on any messages to the class teacher.

​After school, the same member of staff collects the children and takes them to club where they are registered and offered fruit and a drink before joining in with the fun and games with their friends. Club starts at 3:15 pm and operates until 6:30 pm where again, the catering team provide a snack for the children staying late.
