A particular warm welcome to all our new children and parents who have just joined our Abingdon Family.

Reception is the first step in your child’s school journey. It will be an exciting and memorable year where the children will grow, play and learn together.

During the first term we will be concentrating on getting to know each other, encouraging independence, making new friends and learning the school routines.

Class Dojo

At Abingdon Primary we use Class Dojos which is embedded within every year group. This provides the children with an opportunity to earn points based on skills and values created in school and also links in with the schools core values of resilience, respect and responsibility. We use Class Dojos to engage parents by sharing photos and videos of exciting moments in the classroom. It is also an effective way for teachers and parents to communicate.
