Thursday 16th April is National Allocation Day for students entering primary school for the first time.
On this long anticipated day, primary school offers will be sent to parents and carers of young children around the country. It’s a very exciting time for everyone in primary education, and for all the young families introducing their young ones to their first year of primary school.
Every new school year, we have the privilege of welcoming a whole host of excited new faces to school life. To make sure that no family ends up disappointed as the new school year approaches, we’d like to encourage parents and carers to accept their offer of a place at our school as soon as they are able.
The deadline for accepting offers in Wiltshire is 1st May. For more information, see the page on the council website here: http://www.wiltshire.gov.uk/schools-learning-admissions-applying
If you applied after the January deadline, you will receive your offer after 29th May.
At Southbroom Infants’ School we believe that every child matters. We make sure that your child will find learning at our school fun and exciting, but also challenging. As an infants’ school, we understand our crucial role in shaping our children’s attitudes toward school and learning during their first few years in education.
The jump to primary school can be difficult for some children. We place a strong emphasis on making sure each child is given the support they need to successfully adapt to school life, no matter the different challenges they may face.
Our strong connection with Southbroom St James Academy, our local junior school, helps ensure that our pupils enjoy a smooth transition through the different stages of primary school.
If your child has been offered a place at our school, make sure to accept your offer and let us know. We can’t wait to meet you and your child in September!
