 Starting in our Primary School

Normally our new reception children attend the morning sessions only during the first few weeks of September as they settle in to their new classroom before starting full time at school. However we are happy for children start full time as soon as they start, but we always seek to discuss and agree together what will suit the child best.

When a child first starts at the school, parents will be asked to complete an admissions and medical forms together basic permissions for Use of Images, Walks around the Village and an Acceptable Use Agreement for IT. Parents and children will also be expected to sign a Home/School Agreement. It is important that this Agreement is talked over carefully with your child.
