New Starters 2020

Welcome to Hetton Lyons Primary School 

We would like to welcome your family to our school, we can't wait to meet you. Due to the current situation with Covid 19 we are unable to plan our usual parent and child events. Please be assured we are planning for September 2020 and are really looking forward to getting started. We want to reassure you that we are making every effort to ensure you start to our school is the best it can be.

Mrs Lindsay Williams our EYFS lead will be contacting all of families by phone this week to say hello and answer any questions you may have.

Please check back to this page frequently as we update information and dates.


Thursday 2nd July

We have had a lovely time meeting some of you on your doorsteps over the last week, we can't wait to meet everyone properly in September!

As I told many of you during our visit, we will be sending out a pack that you should receive by the beginning of next week; this will contain forms to fill in and details of our September transition. You will also find information about uniforms in there too. We are working hard to finalise our plans as quickly as possible but have waited until the government announcement today to ensure we give you the correct information. We appreciate the patience you have all shown. 

⭐️ Please could you make arrangements to bring in identification for your child (passport or birth certificate) to school next week. You can do this during school hours Monday - Friday by coming to the school office. ⭐️ 

Thank you!


Tuesday 2nd June

⭐️ SEPTEMBER 2020 ⭐️ If your child is starting Hetton Lyons Primary School in September, please fill in this form so that we can set up your Tapestry account early (Tapestry is an online platform that will allow us to share information with you; it is primarily used as a way of sharing significant moments with you when your child is at school)


Friday 15th May

Some of our current EYFS team have created a message for the Reception children; it might be nice for our new starters to see our smiley faces too. 

We have a Facebook page especially for EYFS. If you don't already follow us, you can find it by searching Hetton Lyons Primary School - EYFS Reception 


Monday 11th May

We are very excited to meet you all in person, when we can, but for now we wanted to give you a little sneak peek of some of our favourite areas. We can't wait for you to fill the shoes, by coming to play and learn with us!
