September 2020

Please see the letter dated 1/9/20 for the most up to date information regarding full school reopening in September. It includes important information including staggered start and finish times, an altered transition timetable and other useful details.

We are really looking forward to welcoming your children next week.  Please refer to the letter linked above to see the most up-to-date transition timetable. We are looking forward to saying hello to lots of children in the zoom calls this Thursday and Friday.

We have made some short welcome videos to share with your child at home:

Information for parents with children starting in Reception in 2020

Thank you for choosing Paulton Infant School as the educational setting for your child to join in September. We look forward to welcoming them when schools are open again.

Over the coming weeks and months we will be adding information to this page to help you and your child really get to know the school and become part of the community. We recognise that circumstances are different at the moment and it may not be possible to visit the school so we will do our best to re-create the experience virtually on here. Please explore other pages of this website to help get a feel for the school too.


We can confirm that from September 2020 there will be three reception classes: Ruby, Jade and Opal, so your child will join one of these.
