Reception Intake September 2023

We will be holding face to face guided tours of the school this autumn. The visits will begin from the week beginning 19th September 2022 and run through until early January 2023. Being a small school we don't hold an open day but prefer to give informal tours of the school which are more personal and give an opportunity to ask questions directly to the Headteacher. Each appointment is limited to two families at a time. Please contact the school office for details of times and to make an appointment from the beginning of the Autumn Term 2022.  Applications for school places open on 1st November 2022.

Little Acorns

We know that starting school can be a daunting time for children and concerning for their parents.  We therefore invite all our new children to come up to the School with mums, dads and guardians to meet staff and children and become more familiar with school before they start. 

Our Little Acorns afternoons provide such opportunities in the Summer Term. We visit all our new reception children's nurseries and visit you and your child at home.
