Starting School

This is where families who have a child starting school in September 2021 will find out more information. 

(If your child is starting school in Reception in September 2020, go to the Early Years page. )

 

We understand that choosing the right school for your child is a really important decision and we want to provide you with high quality information about our school in order to support you.

 

There is a great deal of information about our school on this website but we believe the best way to get to know us is by visiting. We encourage you to visit during the school day, when you will get the best sense of what the school will feel like for your child. 

Stay and Play

In recent years we have held Stay and Play afternoon sessions during the year to give children and parents and carers a chance to get to know the school environment and staff. Obviously we have not been able to hold any recently due to COVID 19. 

We hope to begin our Stay and Play afternoon sessions again during the school year 2020 / 2021 and will update you as soon as possible.

Visits 

If you would like to visit us, please call the school office on 01454 260510 to make an appointment. Alternatively you can email the office: office@tortworthprimaryschool.org.uk 

 

During each visit you will be given a tour of the school (usually by the headteacher) and have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have. If you require a private appointment to discuss sensitive personal information about your child and their needs, please lets us know when you book. 

Ready for School

Children are all different and there is no one definition of what makes a child ready for school. There are however, a number of indicators which mean your child is well on the way to being ready.

 

South Gloucestershire have produced a flyer about school readiness which you can download here. Paper copies will be available for you to take away at our pre-school sessions.
