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 2022.


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. Please get in touch via email or telephone and we can make arrangements for this to happen. We hold tours n the Autumn term for the children that will be starting the following September. Dates will be published in 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.
