ADMISSIONS FOR NEW EARLY YEARS RECEPTION SCHOOL PLACES IN SEPTEMBER 2022

WE WOULD LIKE TO EXTEND A WARM WELCOME TO PROSPECTIVE FAMILIES LOOKING FOR AN EARLY YEAR RECEPTION CLASS PLACE IN SEPTEMBER 2022.  We know how important it is to parents when choosing a school for their children and are keen to invite you to visit our school.  At Bradleys Both we do not hold specific open days as feel it is important that prospective parents see our school on a usual school day.  Everyday is an Open Day at Bradleys Both!  

A copy of the NYCC admissions letter for parents of children due to start school in September 2022 can be found as an attachment at the bottom of this page.  Admissions at this time are for parents of nursery age children (who were born between 1 September 2017 and 31 August 2018) if you have a child who falls into the age range above they are due to start school in September 2022 and you must apply for a primary school place for them to start in Reception. The deadline to submit your application is 15 January 2022.  

Please contact the school office on 01535 633116 where a member of the school family team will arrange a mutual appointment to view our school and discuss your child joining the September 2022 Reception Class intake.  We look forward to meeting you.

We returned to school for the start of the Autumn term 2021 on Tuesday 7th September.  The Children, Staff and Governors warmly welcome both our new Early Years Reception children and children transferring to Bradleys Both this September. It has been lovely to meet you all and see how quickly you have settled into our school family.  

School Routines and Protective Measures 

Our school is operating a 'soft start drop off' in the mornings to stagger children's arrival at school.  The gates are unlocked at 8.45am and children should arrive between 8.45am and 9.00am, going straight into their classroom where their teacher will meet them.  Children should not arrive before 8.45am unless they have been booked into our Brads Before School Club.  Registers will be taken promptly at 9.00am. Please continue to use the one way system on and off site, entering at the driveway gate and leaving at the top playground gate. We request that out of respect for the vulnerable members of our school community, face coverings are worn and social distancing is followed when mixing in large groups The collection of children will be from the school playground at 3.30pm. Thank you for continuing to support and consider every member of our school community.(13th September 2021) 

We are looking forward to an exciting school year 2021-2022.

The children, staff and Governors are looking forward to our new Early Years Reception children joining the school family in September 2021. We hope you have found your induction pack helpful in preparing you for starting school.  Further details will be shared with you by email.

We know it has been a challenging year for everyone and we look forward to welcoming everybody back to school in the Autumn term, where hopefully we will be able to return to some normality.  The safety of everyone at our school is paramount and we will be consulting with Government and Local Authority guidance throughout the summer holiday to keep informed of any further changes required.

Currently (July 2021) our plan is to operate a 'soft start drop off' in the mornings. The gates will be unlocked at 8.45am and children should arrive between 8.45 and 9.00am, going straight into their classroom where their teacher will meet them.  Children should not arrive before 8.45am unless they have been booked into our Brads Before School Club.  Registers will be taken promptly at 9.00am. Please continue to use the one way system on and off site, entering at the driveway gate and leaving at the top playground gate. The collection of children will be from the school playground at 3.30pm.

Brads Before and After School Autumn term sessions should be available for parents to book in the next few weeks, prior to returning to school in the Autumn term. 

We wish everyone a fantastic Summer holiday.

Please stay safe and look after each other.  (23rd July 2021)
