Burnley St Peter's

C of E Primary School

New Starters 2020

Welcome to

Reception Starters 2020

Welcome to all of the families starting with us in September 2020. Your child starting school is a huge step for them and yourselves as parents, so we want to make this transition as easy and seamless as possible.

On this page I, Miss Franklin the Reception Class Teacher, will be adding documents, websites and information you need to know before your child starts with us in September 2020. 


Have a good look through the documents and information. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact myself or the leadship team either by phoning the school on 01282 426873 or by emailing me at and we shall endeavour to answer your questions as promptly as possible. 


I will update this page as regularly as I can with further information about arrangements for September and further transition information. I look forward to speaking with you all soon and welcoming your children to our school in September.


Miss Franklin
