We would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to William Murdoch Primary School and thank you for choosing to be part of our wonderful school and community. At this stage of the year we would normally be inviting you to parent welcome meetings, settling in sessions and we would be making home visits, but due to these unprecedented times we are unable to do that right now. We endeavour to keep you informed of all transition arrangements throughout the coming weeks so please keep checking our website for regular updates.
We will ensure a smooth and happy transition for your child from whatever setting be that a Nursery, childminder or home. We very much look forward to meeting you and your child and providing you with a memorable year in Reception. All staff in our Reception classes understand the significant importance of ensuring your child feels welcome and safe, and we promise to provide a positive start to your child’s education. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact school by emailing enquiry@williammurdoch.bham.sch.uk

We look forward to meeting you very soon, and again welcome to William Murdoch Primary School!
