Why Choose a Primary School?
Our Primary School has these benefits:
- only one school transfer at age eleven, so less stress for pupils;
- two complete key stages of the National Curriculum in one school, so better continuity and progression from class to class in the children’s work;
- staff, parents and pupils having the benefit of knowing each other for eight years, so strong liaison;
- a familiar atmosphere and greater convenience for parents as brothers and sisters are in the same school.
Prospective parents are always welcome to talk to the Head or to look around the school. Just telephone the school for an appointment.
For parents wishing to send their child into the reception classes, they must apply to their Local Education Authority. You can apply online here.
The closing date for applications for children who are due to start Reception in September 2020, or due to transfer from Infant to Junior, is the 15th January 2021.
Offers will be sent out on 16th April 2021 and offers should be accepted by 24th April 2021.
For children due to start Reception in September 2021, the window for applying online will open in late August 2021 and remain open until mid January 2022. Offers of places then get sent out by Warwickshire County Council in the Spring.
Induction into Reception Classes
We aim for parents being well informed and the children happy to start school through our induction programme. Induction meetings for parents are held at school and there is the opportunity for the class teacher to meet you and your child in your own home. The children have opportunities to meet with their new class teachers during the Summer Term and there is always close liaison between nursery and reception classes.
