Janet Duke Primary School


‘Together We Learn, Together We Achieve, As One.’


Hello and welcome to our Foundation Stage

Thank you for choosing to send your child to our school.  We want them to be happy and make lots of progress during their time with us. 

We value the learning that takes place at home with you as well as the learning that happens in school.  When you see your child do something amazing that they have never done before e.g learn to swim or ride a bike, take turns, ask to read…anything special for your child, please can you fill in a ‘Wow’ note and send it into school.  You can send in a photo of what they have achieved as well if you wish.  We will be displaying your child’s ‘Wow notes’ in the entrance corridor to the Reception classes from the Autumn Term. So you will be able to come in and have your proud moment at school.
