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!

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

We recommend you look through the website: there are lots of pictures and videos that will help give you a feel for the life of the school. Here are a few highlights:
Meet the Headteacher
There are a series of zoom meetings for parents to meet the Headteacher. Please visit our admissions page for dates and details of how to book. These will run October - January.
Below you will find a few tours around school: the only thing missing is the children!
Tour 1: The main building
Tour 2: The Reception area (inside and outside)
Tour 3: The school grounds
Below you will find a few documents used by the current Reception Year group when they started school. You may find some of these helpful.
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.
