Great Sankey Primary School

Reception Starters

We are delighted to welcome you and your child to Great Sankey Primary and we hope that you are as excited about joining us in September as we are of meeting with you. A great deal of information can be found in your transition packs which you will have been given during the welcome meeting. Many of these documents are also attached below for you to refer to. If you have any further queries or questions then please do not hesitate to contact school on 01925 728176 or via email

Alongside what we have already put in place, we have created a very special presentation where you and your child will get the opportunity to 'virtually' meet the Reception staff as well as listen to them read stories and complete a 'Chatterbox' task. We introduced this approach in 2020 and it was a great success. It also allows you to revisit this with your child throughout the summer to help with familiarisation. Please click on the image below and it will take you to your very own 'Welcome' event.

In the meantime, please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any queries.
