SCHOOL ADMISSIONS INTO RECEPTION  

A copy of the school prospectus is available here:

A separate application has to be made for a school place during the year of nursery provision. Skyswood actively encourages visits from parents who are considering applying for a place in either our Nursery or Reception class. These visits include a presentation by the Headteacher, and an opportunity to have a tour around the nursery/school.

The Reception year gives careful consideration to ensuring the smoothest possible transition from nursery settings. During the term before admission to primary school, all those children who will be entering Skyswood School’s Reception Class are invited to an organised visit to the classroom with a parent/carer so they can become familiar with their new environment and meet the Early Years’ staff team. These visits include an opportunity for both child and parent to enjoy a complementary school meal and a story time activity during which parents can meet together and become acquainted. Similar arrangements will be made with other receiving schools.

The reception tours for autumn 2020 must follow Covid-safe guidelines and we are not permitted to have large numbers on each tour (maximum of six people including the headteacher). In order to ensure the safest scenario we are unable to offer tours during the working hours of the school day.

The tours available, will mostly take place on Saturday mornings, although we have added two tours on Sunday 29th November and two evening tours on Thursday 26th November. The tours will provide the opportunity to meet with the headteacher, have a look around the school and ask any questions concerning admission into our reception class for September 2021.
