Viewing the School
Open mornings for prospective parents are arranged annually in the Autumn Term. For a list of dates, please visit our Open Mornings page under News & Events.
Prior to children starting school, they are invited to attend a morning session in their classroom to become familiar with their new environment and to meet their peers. Parents are also invited to a brief information meeting with the Headteacher, Foundation Stage teacher, School Council children and representatives from the Governing body and PTA. These visits are extremely useful to both parents and children in getting to know the school.
