We hope that Offord Primary School is your first choice, and would love to welcome your child in to our reception class in September 2021.

We would like to invite you for a tour of the school to see our classrooms and facilities and also to meet some of the staff.  

These will be held at 4pm on:

Monday 12th October

Unfortunately, due to current restriction tours can not take place during the school day, However we will be able to meet some of our staff who will be able to show you around the whole site, talk about the learning that happens in our classes and answer any of your questions.

Tours need to be booked in advance - each date will be restricted to three families. 

Please contact the school office for further information or to book a tour.   01480 810308 option 2

If these dates are not convenient, we will do our upmost to accommodate you at an alternative time.

Information, Meet the Staff & Photo tour of the school

This PowerPoint was created in Summer 2020. It goes over the information that we usually share at the New Parents' Evening.  There is also introduces the key staff and has lots of photos of the school to help get both parents and children prepared for September. Click on the piciture below to access the presentation.



The poster below was created by the EYFS Leads across the schools in The Cam Academy Trust, detailing skills we hope children will be developing on their entry to school. This may provide you with ideas of things you can do over the next few weeks to support your child in preparation for starting school.


Pupil Premium

If you think you may be entitled to Pupil Premium fund, please complete the form at this link

You can find more information on pupil premium and the eligibility criteria by clicking here

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.
