New to Somerville 2020

Starting Somerville Nursery School

Dear Parent and Carers

If you have been allocated a place at Somerville Nursery we will contact you upon our return in September to arrange suitable start dates and will also organise settling in sessions to support your child's transition to Nursery.

Starting Somerville Primary School

Dear Parent or Carer,


We are very much looking forward to your child joining the Somerville family. Whether you chose Somerville Primary School for the next step in your child’s educational journey or the choice was taken out of your hands, I would like to take this opportunity to offer you and your child the warmest of welcomes.

Our Foundation 2 team are excited to begin the start of the Somerville Primary School journey with your child. 

I’m sure you are aware of the challenges schools are currently facing and I truly hope that your family are well and have not been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. 

At Somerville we would usually have a very active induction period for your child in which we familiarise them with their classrooms and the adults who will be working closely with them during their first year. It is also an opportunity to get to know you and your family and vice versa. 

This year in these unprecedented times, we have been unable to plan your child’s school based induction at present due to social distancing measures and other necessary guidelines.  We are thinking creatively around this problem and will be in touch shortly with how this will be delivered this year.  We want always to ensure that your child’s safety and happiness comes first and foremost at Somerville.

Please monitor your e-mail account as details will come via e-mail. If we do not have your email address please contact the school office either by email or telephone as soon as possible so that we can keep you updated.

In the meantime I have put together a virtual tour of the Primary School on our school website, if you click on SCHOOL TOUR on the tope of this website page. Your child will be using one of the first three classrooms on the left after Blue Bird Room.

Warm regards,

Mr M. J. Forber

Executive Headteacher
