Transition to Reception Class September 2021


Message from Mr Standing, Acting Head of SMMA Primary

I am delighted that you have chosen SMMA as your child's school for September 2021.  It is a priviledge to serve our community and I hope that you are made to feel welcome.  Some of you will already be familiar with the school as you have older children with us, but for some of you this is your first time.  This is an exciting time for you, but we also know that it can be a time which makes people feel a little nervous too due to be a little unsure.  We are so sorry that we have been unable to meet you in person, but look forward to doing so in September.  To help you with this, we have created this section of the website to add resources to support you and your child in preparing to join us.  Some of them are just for adults, but some you should share with your child.  I encourage you to contact us if you have any additional questions or worries, we all want to help.  Either phone into the school office or email

I look forward to meeting you and your children.

Mr Laurence Standing
