Reception 2021 admission information

 Admission Information for Reception 2021


It is at this time of year that parents begin making the all important decision as to where their child will begin their school journey. We know that many of you will want to see what schools have to offer with your decisions this year being largely based on more remote judgements of settings.

We are still conducting 'look-arounds' for prospective parents/carers on Monday evenings after school at 3.45pm, after the children have gone home. If you wish to attend one of these sessions, please contact the school office on 01543 227210. To keep yourselves and our school community safe, we ask that you wear a mask or visor for these and if you are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms, you don't attend. 

If you are not able to attend, we have also  put together this page on our website to provide you with a selection of tools and information to help you get an idea of what life at Christ Church CE (c) Primary is like. We hope that you find it helpful.


If you do have any further questions or need more information, please contact our school office on 01543 227210


Reception at Christ Church CE (c) Primary School

Christ Church CE (c) Primary School is a two form entry school from Reception to Year 6. Whilst we are extremely proud of our high achieving school where children leave us in Year 6 with very good outcomes  and strong life long skills, we are also incredibly proud that our school is a happy place where children love coming to learn. Our caring, Christian ethos underlies everything that we do and the values that we uphold.
