Reception Transition 2022/2023 

Welcome to Bishop Gilpin Reception. We are excited to welcome you into Hedgehog and Rabbit classes. For more information about the Early Years curriculum at Bishop Gilpin, please follow this link.  

We're looking forward to meeting you all in September. Below you will find all the transition information that you will need to help prepare your child for Reception at Bishop Gilpin.


In readiness for starting Reception, please share the videos below with your child to introduce them to their new class teacher. 

Hedgehog class teacher, Mrs Fletcher

Rabbit class teacher, Mrs Kingsley and Mrs Dobinson


To help familiarise your child with the environment we have created a Reception online transition booklet for you to share together.

In addition, please complete the 'All About Me' sheet for us to get to know your child. It also provides useful talking points on your child's first day.
