Meet the reception teachers!


Hello to all of you!

We thought that the children would like to meet their teachers that they will have in Reception in September.

The three teachers will be Mrs Aslett, Miss Baxter and Mrs Herdman.

Below is a little video message from each of us!


As well as the teachers, each class has an EYP (Early Years Practitioner) who works alongside the teacher.
We hope to introduce you to our EYPs soon too!


There will be more information to follow this week so keep checking in!

Information about admission to our school

Admission to all year groups from Reception to Year 6 are managed through Reading Borough Council (Brighter Futures for Children) Admissions Team.  This includes admissions for pupils from September and also for in-year admissions for parents/carers who wish to transfer pupils to another school, perhaps due to a house move. 


Nursery admissions are managed by the school.  Please contact the school office to put your child's name down for a Nursery place.  Children usually start Nursery after their third birthday.  A copy of our Nursery Admissions Policy is available below.
