New Admissions for September 2021
Thank you for your interest in Courtney Primary School. Please have a look at the prospectus below to find out about our values and ethos.
Message from the Headteacher
Dear Parents and Carers,
It probably seems far too early, and your child probably seems far too young, but it is already that time when you need to be considering which school your child will start at in September 2021. I am so proud to be able to introduce to our wonderful family-friendly school, Courtney Primary. We fully appreciate that it is such a big decision for you to make and that finding the right school for your family is so important.
Like so many other things at the moment, we are having to carry out our admissions process a little differently this year. We managed to safely organise one Saturday Open Morning but, with the recent news of another lockdown, have unfortunately had to cancel the one timetabled for November. If we can organise another visit before the applications have to be in on 15th January 2021 then of course will.
Please look at the information on this page and on our general website to give yourself a flavour of what makes our school special- in particular, have a look at our 'Intake 2021 Video Presentation' which will be uploaded in the next few days and at our 'School Video' a copy of which is below.
If you still have questions that you cannot find the answer to, please do give us a ring or drop us an email. We are always happy to help and no question is ever too small.
All the very best with your decision-making and thank you for taking the time to look at Courtney.
One day last June, a film crew came in to take a video of our school in action. Please have a look.

When a lot of the children were learning at home, one of our teachers put together the video below so experiences could be shared and connections made.
Reception 2021: Admissions Process
The school has adopted South Gloucestershire Education Service’s policy for admissions. Children normally start school in the September of the academic year in which they become 5. Information (including details of visits and an application pack) is given to parents who contact the school in the Autumn (September and early October) before their child is due to start. All school admissions are managed by South Gloucestershire Council. For more information, please contact www.southglos.gov.uk or 01454 863314.
We also sometimes have a few spaces in some year groups. If you are interested in your child joining the school mid-year, please telephone the office to see whether there is space for your child.
Admissions are handled through South Gloucestershire. However, we would be delighted to show you around for you to consider whether the school is right for your child.
All school admissions are managed by South Gloucestershire Council. For more information, please contact www.southglos.gov.uk or 01454 863314.
