Starting School

For families who have a child starting Tortworth School we hope that you will find out more information here and by looking at our website. 

If your child is starting school for the first time in Reception then click here to go to the Early Years page. 


We understand that choosing the right school for your child is a really important decision, so we aim to provide you with some of the necessary information in order to support you to make the best choice for your child .


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.

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.
