We are so excited to meet you all in September and hope you are too. In May you will be sent a welcome letter along with the opportunity to tell us about any friends you would like your child to be in the same class with. Although we cannot guarantee we will meet all your requests we will try our best. In June you will receive two letters, one to let you know which class (Tigers, Lions or Bears) your child will be in, followed by another letter informing you who your teacher is, your home visit and start dates and times. We will also send you a little booklet with photos of your class and important places around the school.  At a later date you will find copies of these booklets on this page, along with the information leaflet that you will have included in your pack.

Below is a brief introduction, providing information about the next few months as well as the home visits and stay and play opportunity.


For over the summer your teachers will make a short video to introduce themselves. Once uploaded (at the end of July) you will find them in the video section below.  In addition to this we will add a presentation for parents, which will give information about starting at Kilmorie. We hope this will answer many of your questions, but if you have others please contact us at info@kilmorie.lewisham.sch.uk

The Stay and Play and Home Visits will be done in September before the children fully start.

Stay and Play

The Stay and Play is an opportunity for your child to explore their classroom and meet the teachers. Whilst this is happening the parents will be invited to come to a presentation ran by the Early Phase Lead who will give more detailed information about Reception and the school day e.g. the curriculum, reading days, lunches, routines etc. and hopefully answer more of your questions. This event will be an hour long and each class will have a set day, this means the parents get an opportunity to meet one another too.

Home Visits

Home visits are a good way of helping your child settle in and to get to know their teacher and teaching assistant in a setting familiar to them.  Although this means starting one week later than the rest of the school we have found it to be such a valuable experience for your child, having the opportunity to form a relationship with their teachers on a 1:1 basis, that we feel it is worth the time spent. You will receive the date and time of this in June. The home visit will be on one day and last 20 minutes.
