A big warm welcome from the Foundation Team!


Here you will find everything you need to know about Foundation at St John the Baptist Primary School.


Class information

Dino the dinosaur is our class take-home teddy. Please enjoy the weekend with him and support your child to record the experience in Dino’s diary. Every child will have the opportunity to take home Dino at some point during the year. Please return him back to school on Monday. You may share photographs in Dino’s book, but we would also really love to see children’s drawing. Please remember Dino’s diary will be shared with the class so do not put in photographs which you are not happy to share.


The children will be doing PE on Wednesday and Thursday. Please ensure your child comes to school in their PE kit on those days. As the weather will be getting colder you will need to provide your children with jogging bottoms and a jumper for PE.

Forest school sessions take place on a Friday morning. On that day please send your child to school with wellingtons or old shoes. Please make sure they are labelled and in a bag.

Please provide your child with a clearly labelled water bottle on a daily basis. Please be reminded that it is water only in bottles. Children are also welcome to bring fruit for break time.

Please make sure everything is clearly labelled, especially book bags, jumpers, cardigans, and coats! This really helps when gathering belongings at the end of the day and avoids lost property. In addition, please also help your child to become independent in putting their coats on, taking them off and fastening them.
