New to Reception - September 2021

We are delighted to welcome you as a parent to Norwood Primary School and congratulations on your child being given a place for September as we have been oversubscribed this year.

In light of the continuing restrictions on inviting visitors into school, the usual meeting we would have had for all new Reception parents has been replaced by a video, which outlines everythng you need to know as you make plans for the upcoming school year.

This includes:

  • Taster days
  • Parent and child visits
  • Start dates in September
  • Getting Your Child Ready for Starting School

Hopefully we have covered everything, but if you have any questions, please refer to the Frequently Asked Questions below or contact the school office.
