Parent and carer visits

Parent and carer visits


We warmly welcome you to visit our school and you can do this by making an appointment with the school office. Choosing a school for your child is an important decision and whilst our website provides a wealth of information, meeting us in person and seeing the school in action will enable you to understand what we do, how we do it and why we do it. 


Joining Reception


Before your child starts in Reception, you would have had the opportunity to tour the school and once offered a school place you will be invited to attend an induction meeting before your child starts school. We will offer a number of transition events to familiarise you and your child with the school.  If parents wish, it is also our policy to provide a home visit for Pre-Reception children by their Class Teacher. 


In-Year admissions


If you are considering an in-year admission, you will also want to visit us and tour the school. This can also be arranged by contacting the school office. 


Other contact


We do like to encourage a close relationship between school and home, which we view as a partnership.  However, if at any time you wish to discuss with a teacher or Headteacher particular concerns, please try to make an appointment.  Appointments can avoid the disappointment of not seeing the staff, as they are often involved in after school activities.
