Reception September 2021
If your child is due to start with us in September in Reception - thank you for choosing Lime Academy Abbotsmede as your child's school, we are looking forward to working with you and your family. Information about meeting your child's class teacher has been sent to you.
Before the meeting, you will need to view the PowerPoint Presentation we have created (see the link on right hand side of screen). It will provide vital information about preparing your child for school and what they will need. It will also help introduce you to our Early Years Reception Team as well as answer any questions you may have.
Please also view the Parent Video on Read Write Inc Phonics (see the link on right hand side of screen) to introduce you to how your child will be taught phonics.
If your child's birthday falls between 01/09/2016 and 31/08/2017 and you have not yet applied for their Reception place, you must submit a late application to Peterborough City Council. This can be done via the late application form that can be found here: https://www.peterborough.gov.uk/residents/schools-and-education/school-admissions/starting-school-in-reception
If you need any assistance or have any questions regarding applying for a school place, please speak to Mrs Lidgett.
