Compass Primary School

Starting School at Peckover

Starting Reception in 2020

A message from the principal Mrs Norman

I would like to take the opportunity of welcoming you all to Peckover Primary School.

The purpose of this dedicated section of our website is to provide you with as much information as possible to help transition your child into our Reception classes in September.

You should have received a welcome pack from us which outlines how our transition will work this year from an initial call with your child’s new teacher, to how we will conduct our “stay and play” sessions with you, before your child starts with us full time.

We have a fantastic team of staff working in our Early Years department and I can assure you that there will be lots of fun opportunities to learn and make new friends.

After reading all of the information provided to you, if you have any questions then please email them to either your class teachers or to the school office office@peckoverprimary.org. We have included a Frequently Asked Questions section below that may help with some of your questions or queries.

In the meantime, stay safe and I look forward to meeting you all in September.

Carrie Norman
Associate Principal

Our learning areas

We have lots of areas inside that the children can access all day, in both classes. The children are busy all day either making a creation in the wood work area, being an artist in the creative area, being a chef and making fruit kebabs for snack or even working on their fine motor skills in the clay area.

The inside isn’t our only classroom, the outside is our classroom but without a roof! The children are always busy outside being gardeners growing their own vegetables, being explores digging for mini beasts or even treasure and being builders constructing with the big blocks.

We use the outside all year around, in all weathers even in the rain and snow!
