Reception Admissions 2021-22

are1e are delighted to welcome your child to our Reception class in September 2021-22.

We would normally hold parents meetings, stay and play sessions and a tour of our school building to help your child with their transition.  Unfortunately, we are unable to carry out these sessions at this present time.  We will aim to keep you up to date with any developments and advice we receive.

School Meals – The Government has agreed to provide universal free school meals to all pupils from Reception – Y2.  However, we would request that you complete the link here prior to your child starting school.  This completed information will ensure that school will receive funding if your child is eligible for means tested FSMs.

School Uniform – All orders must be made online and these will be delivered to your home address.  Please note that to obtain uniform for the start of term all orders must be placed prior to 18 July 2021.  No orders can be accepted in the school office at present due to Health and Safety concerns.  You can order online by clicking here.

Pupil Contact Information form – This must be completed and returned before Friday 16 July.  Completed forms must be returned to michelleleighton@gateshead.gov.uk.  Again no booklets can be accepted in school due to the recent pandemic.
