Dear Parents,

We are delighted that you have accepted Penistone St John’s Primary School for your child.  We recognise that  transition into Reception is a big step for both you and your child and that the uncertainty of lockdown might have made you feel more anxious, especially if you are completely new to our school. 

We just wanted to reassure you and let you know that we are here to support you in the run-up to starting and we are very excited to meet you.

Please click on the videos below to go on a tour of our Reception classes, and meet our staff.

We hope you enjoy meeting our Early Years' Team and listening to the stories.
