Induction Letter

North Petherton Community Primary School

Schoolfields, North Petherton, Somerset, TA66LU


Headteacher:  Mr G Hobbs

Acting Deputy Head:   Ms S Penfold


24th June 2020


Dear parent


We are really looking forward to seeing you and your child in September. Starting school is a significant time for families, and we will be with you every step of the way.


At about this time, we would have been welcoming you to the new parents’ evening and outlining our induction programme.  However, due to the current situation, we have had to adapt our plans.


Mrs Gibbon and Mrs Kimmins will be delivering your welcome packs personally on Monday 29th June. They will socially distance on your doorstep, but it may give them the chance to say hello to you and your child, if you are at home.   Please do not worry if you are not at home as your welcome pack will be posted through the letterbox. 


We are currently planning for Foundation children to start on Tuesday 8th September. The first four days will be part-time; a mixture of mornings and afternoons (further details will be in your pack). Your child will be able to start full-time from Monday 14th September, if you think they are ready. As you will appreciate, the situation nationally is changing week by week and we must follow the latest government and local authority advice. Please be assured that our priority is, and always will be, the wellbeing of the children and to make sure they have the very best start to life at North Petherton.


For more information regarding your child starting school, please see the school website


Yours sincerely,


G Hobbs
