Prospective Parents 2021
If your child was born between 1st September 2016 and 31st August 2017, then they will be due to start school in September 2021. For more information about primary school admissions, please click here: South Gloucestershire Primary Admissions
As a result of Covid-19, we have had to alter our arrangements for prospective parents this year. We have thought carefully about what information you need as new parents along with how best to facilitate this.
We have therefore decided to split our usual parent tour into two different elements:
Part 1: Welcome to Christ Church (online)
This will be a virtual session led by Neil McKellar-Turner (Headteacher), Amy Robbins (Deputy Headteacher) and the Early Years Team. The session will last for approximately 30 minutes and provide you with an overview of the school, our vision and values and information about how children learn in the EYFS. This will be followed by a Question and Answer session.
These will take place on the following dates:
- Monday 19th October 2020 @6.30pm
- Wednesday 21st October 2020 @6.30pm
- Thursday 19th November 2020 @6.30pm
Part 2: Socially distanced tour of the school (in person)
We think that visiting the school is really important in helping you to make a decision about your child’s first school. In line with our school risk assessment, and to keep everyone as safe as possible, tours will:
-Be no more than 30 minutes in length
-Be limited to two families at any one time, so that we can socially distance
-Be for adults only. To minimise numbers and the risk of touching surfaces etc., unfortunately no children will be able to attend
-Require adults to wear face covering (masks) throughout
-Require parents to follow the lead adult around the school site
-Be held out of school hours
-Take place outside of the school building (you will be able to look in through classroom doors to get a glimpse of the indoor environment!)
These tours will take place at staggered times on:
- Monday 9th November between 4.00pm and 6.00pm
- Thursday 19th November between 4.00pm and 6.00pm
- Wednesday 25th November between 4.00pm and 6.00pm
- Saturday 28th November between 10.00am and 2.00pm
To book a place for both parts, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, telephone number and email address, stating which virtual session you wish to attend and your two preferred dates for the school tour. We will be in touch nearer the time to confirm and send further information.
We look forward to welcoming you to Christ Church CE Primary, both virtually and in person! Please do speak to the school office if you have any questions.
