Visits to school before admission
Parents are welcome to visit school by appointment with the Headteacher.
Children who are due to join our Nursery and Reception classes and their parents will be given the opportunity to have a number of visits to school in the Summer Term.
Parent meetings are also arranged allowing parents to meet staff and to help make the entry into school as smooth as possible for all children.
Home visits for pupils entering Nursery and Reception are offered in the first week in September so children, parents and staff are able to share information.
