Starting school in 2021


Because of the current situation we are unable to offer school tours. However, we want you to get a good feel for the school to help you in your decision-making.

The first thing to do is to watch the video we made a year ago showing all sorts of things about the school. Although some of the activities here we are unable to do at present, it will hopefully not be long before we are all-singing and all-dancing once again!

Documents and Letters

Please note: these are last year's letters and they will be updated in due course ready for 2021. However, they will give you an idea of our arrangements for starting school

Welcome videos from the class teachers

Here are the welcome videos we made for the current Reception children. Staffing inevitably changes slightly year-on-year, but you can expect most of the staff to remain the same.

Class 1- Barn Owls

Class 2- Snowy Owls

September Induction Period

This is the current induction period. As you can see, we aim to have children full-time in school within 2 weeks. Despite the Covid lockdown period almost all children started full-time as soon as they were able, and they have all made a great start. Children who needed a longer setlling-in period were also able to do so.
