Crindau Primary School

Hand in Hand we Inspire and Celebrate Success

Get in Touch

Reception - Mrs Otton

Hello and welcome to our Reception class page. 

I started working at Crindau Primary as a Teaching Assistant in 1999 and have worked with all year groups. This inspired me to become a teacher. I completed my teacher training in 2016 and have been teaching in Nursery for the last three years. 

When I am not in school I like to watch Newport Rugby play at Rodney Parade. I also like to travel.




General Information


The school uniform consists of a red sweatshirt and a white polo shirt. These must be worn with black trousers, skirt or pinafore dresses. In the summer pupils will have the option of red and white summer dresses or black culottes or shorts. Children should wear all black shoes as part of the school uniform.

Crindau Primary sweatshirts with a school badge can be bought from BEAM, Cambrian Road.


For PE, parents are advised to provide their child with a sensible pair of trainers or daps, a plain white t-shirt and black shorts. Indoor PE lessons are usually conducted in bare feet.


Please make sure that clothing is labelled with your child's name, especially jumpers and coats. 


Book Bags

Please make sure your child has a book bag. Books will be sent home on a Tuesday and Friday. Please send book bags back to school on Monday and Thursday.


Drinks and snacks

Please ensure that your child has a bottle that can be refilled with water and if you would like your child to have a snack at break time, please send a piece of fruit.



We no longer send paper information so you will need to download the Schoop app onto you phone. Select Reception and Whole School so that you receive the appropriate information. I send a weekly Schoop on a Friday updating you with what the children have been doing during the week and with a Weekly Workout for the children to do at home. There could also be other messages during the week.




Our SpringTerm project will be Curious about Culture. We will be reading the book All are Welcome and Pancakes to Parathas. Click the links below.
