New starters 2021

1st October 2020
Prospective Parents for Reception 2021

Dear Parents and Carers,

Thank you for your interest in Courtney Primary School. We fully understand what an important decision it is to find the right first school for your child and will do our very best to provide you with the information you need to make an informed choice despite the restrictions that are in place.

We are arranging two Saturday mornings for visits as there is nothing better than actually seeing the school in real life. Unfortunately, we won’t be able to involve our wonderful House Captains and School Council Members who we usually employ to help show people around and answer questions in the honest way children do. Our school, consequently, will be very empty but you should be able to get a feel for the place.

The two visits are:

Saturday 17th October 10am – 12 noon

Saturday 14th November 10am – 12 noon


In order to keep everyone socially distanced, we will have certain things in place:

·         Visits will be via timed appointment only.

·         A list of names and contact details will be kept for Track and Trace purposes

·         There will be a one-way system in place.

·         Staff will be available but will be positioned outside (weather permitting) or in larger well-ventilated areas.

Although we realise that it will be very difficult to visit with your child and stop them touching everything, we think it’s important for them to visit with you if you want them to and to rely on you doing your very best to minimise them touching things. (We will clean anything we need to if this happens.)

In order to book your appointment, please contact the school office or telephone 01454 866670.

In the meantime, please visit our website and look at:

1.     Our school prospectus

2.     Our school video

3.     Our lockdown video

All of these can be found on the title page.

The Courtney team and I look forward to meeting you.
