Dear Parents and Carers                                                                                                                                           

New Parents and Carers Reception Children 2022
Welcome to The Harlington and Sundon Academy Trust

I am delighted to be able to warmly welcome you and your child to The Harlington and Sundon Academy Trust. Our Academy is a partnership of two schools. We work with the community, trustees, staff and parents to create a safe and happy environment where every child achieves their maximum potential.

We are committed to make your child’s entry into our school smooth, supportive and successful. I look forward to getting to know you and your child. Our school has extremely positive relationships with children, parents and all members of our community, and we look forward to building this relationship with you. By working together, we can provide firm foundations for an enjoyable and ambitious learning journey for your child. And in partnership to support and nurture your child’s experiences and education over the coming years.

The Harlington and Sundon Academy Trust strives to offer a curriculum that gives children the best possible start to their education by developing their independence, curiosity, imagination and desire to learn; we want children to leave our school with a collection of memorable learning experiences. The Academy endeavours to provide a stimulating learning environment, offering a variety of high quality and exciting learning opportunities and experiences within a broad and balanced curriculum. The curriculum promotes our common values whilst recognising and valuing our differences within school and the wider community.


Our Office Manager, Mrs Clarke at Sundon Lower will be contacting parents with an administration pack over the coming weeks. This pack will contain all the necessary forms that we require to add your child to the school administration system. Please return these as soon as possible.  You will be informed by letter which ‘Group’ your child will be in for transition and starting school activities and times.

New Parent/ Carer Intake Evening
Welcome Presentation Tuesday 7th June 2022, 6-00 to 7pm

All our new parents and carers are invited to our New Intake Information.  This will be an opportunity to meet our Head Teacher, Deputy Head teacher and our Early Years team. Our Early Years presentation will give you lots of information about starting Reception and preparing your child for school. Following our welcome to Reception presentation you will have the opportunity of visiting with child’s classroom. If you have any thoughts or questions you would like to discuss with your child’s class teacher, this is the opportunity to do so.

Supporting Transition

Ensuring a supportive transition for your child is our absolute priority.  Our proposed transition procedures are as follows:

  • Stay and Play Session Tuesday 5th July 2022.   You and your child will be invited to attend one of these sessions. This is an exciting opportunity for you and your child to meet your child’s teacher and see their classroom.   9.30am to 11.30am
  • Monday 5th September 2022. Our first group of Reception children who were N2 last year, will  start school from 8.50 am. to 3.15 p.m.
  • ​​​​​​​Tuesday 6th September 2022.  Our second group of Reception children (Children new to Reception) will join us full time along with the first group of children during school hours (8.50am to 3.15pm).
  • Wednesday 14th September 2022. Our Nursery children (N2’s)  will join the rest of the class.

You will be notified which group and the start date for your children to begin school. From past experience we have had the youngest children start first and we will continue with this system, so all children settle smoothly.

We have planned a staggered entry into school as we recognise that coming into a large class of children may be overwhelming for some children whilst overs may have had a significant period not in an educational setting. We are grateful for your support in this. These dates and timings remain subject to change dependent on any changes due to the pandemic.  We will communicate any changes to you.

Yours sincerely

Mrs C White

Head Teacher
