Open Morning - Saturday 6 November

For parents looking for a Reception place for 2022, our Open Morning will take place on Saturday 6 November from 10am to 12 noon. Please register on the google form below if you are planning to attend. Our plans may need to change depending on current COVID guidelines, so we will get in touch if we need to make any changes. 

The Open Morning is a great opportunity for you to see our whole school and meet all our teaching staff in different year groups, not just the Reception classroom and outdoor area. Children can play and discover, and our Hall will be open with refreshments provided by the school kitchen and served by our brilliant Burley Woodhead PTA. Our breakfast/after school club Sunrise/Sunset will also be open for more play opportunities and a chance for you to ask staff about our wraparound care. Come and see our whole curriculum in action and find out why we are currently the 8th best performing primary school in England. 

Parent only visits during school hours - 10, 11, 12 November

If you require an additional visit to school, or are unable to make our Open Morning, we have organised three further opportunities for prospective parents to visit school during the day. The hour long visits will be led by our Headteacher Joanne Siddall and you will have a guided tour of our Reception class facilities and outdoor areas. This visit is for parents only (max 2 per family please) and is not suitable for pre school children. Please sign up via the google form below.

Zoom online presentation - Wednesday 24 November

For parents who are unable to visit school in person, or if COVID guidance changes, we are also holding an online meeting led by our Headteacher with presentations by Reception teachers and other key staff in school. There will also be a live tour of the classroom so you can see the setting and the children learning and playing. A link will be sent out nearer the time, and please sign up via the google form below
