RECEPTION OPEN AFTERNOONS

Existing parents, prospective parents, carers and students are more than welcome to visit us during our forthcoming open afternoons to get a taste of what we’re all about. It’s an opportunity to meet the staff and see your child interacting within their school environment. It is also an opportunity for prospective parents to gain first-hand experience, which is vital when choosing the correct school setting for your child. Parents/Carers will be able to meet Senior Leaders and Teachers and hear about their vision for the school. It will also give parents/carers the opportunity to ask questions related to the school’s provision. We currently have space in Reception (7 places) and in Year 2 (3 places). If you are aware of anybody that is looking to move into the area and/or is requiring a school place in these year groups please invite them to pop along too.

 

Open afternoon dates: Tuesday 19th November 1.30pm – 2.45pm

Wednesday 20th November 1.30pm – 2.45pm

 

If you are unable to make either of these dates but would like to come and visit the school please contact the admin office to make a suitable appointment.
