New Starters Reception Information
We hope that Offord Primary School is your first choice, and would love to welcome your child in to our reception class in September 2024.
Choosing a school for your child is an important decision and it is important that you feel you have all the information to do that. We would strongly encourage you visit schools so you can see for yourself what goes on, feel the school, meet the staff and ask any questions you have.
We would love to meet you and show you round our small, friendly village school.
We will be holding a number of tours of the school. These will allow you to see the school in action and to ask any questions you may have. The tours will be informal and you are welcome to bring children with you.
The tours are to be held on:
Tuesday 26th September at 9am
Thursday 19th October at 2pm
Monday 27th November at 3.30pm.
Please get in touch with the school office to book your place or if you have any questions.
If you have applied for a place at Offord Primary School for September 2024, Cambridgeshire County Council will confirm your place in April. We will be in touch soon after to share transition arrangements for the summer term and September.
In the meantime, please have a look at the resources below that were made for the parents, carers and children a couple of years ago, it will give you a flavour of life in our reception class

Although all Reception and KS1 children at our school receive free lunches, we urge you to apply for Pupil Premium if you are entitled to it as this will mean your child receives meals when they move into KS2, as well as providing extra funding for the school.
