Dear Parents and Carers

Intake of Reception pupils for 2020-2021

I am very pleased to offer your child a place at our school for the next academic year 2020-2021, and am delighted to welcome you to Henham and Ugley Primary and Nursery School.

Ordinarily at this time, we would be advising you of the dates and timings for your child to attend sessions in the classroom, as well as a meeting for new parents, in order that we can answer any questions you may have.  Of course, at the moment, these are not ordinary times!

I am sure you have many questions, including concerns about how your child will settle in to life at Henham with children they don’t know and an environment they are not used to.

Below is a link to a short video from Mrs Barford, to provide you with a glimpse of what to expect in September, until we can all get together again!

At the moment, as you know, everything is on hold, including the refurbishment of our outdoor area – these plans will still be going ahead, albeit delayed!

Below is also some useful information and guidance for supporting children aged 2-4:

You will also find some short videos and simple, fun activities that you and your children can do together on our website and also at:

If in the meantime, you have any questions about September,  you can either contact your child’s class teacher, Mrs Barford.  Her direct email is:

Or me directly at 

I look forward to seeing you all soon, keep safe everyone!
