New Reception 2020

Welcome to Bassetts Farm School. We look forward to welcoming you in September.

On this page you will find extra bits of information specifically for the new reception 2020. Over the coming weeks, we will upload videos and messages for your child to look at and see their teacher.

Shortly, we will be posting out information for you to look through. This will let you know about which class your child is in and who will be teaching your child.

We also have a specific Facebook page:click here: Reception Facebook Link
