Winster C E Primary School
May I, on behalf of the school staff and governors, offer you a very warm welcome. We work hard to ensure that all children are happy at Winster and that their stay here is both rewarding and stimulating.
Education is a partnership between parents, children and teachers; each element of the partnership is important. Co-operation between home and school is vital if the children are to develop and achieve success - we look forward to working with you.
The purpose of this section is to give you information about the school. You may also download a file of the School Prospectus which also provides this.
Pre-school visits are arranged for all children joining the school. We also hope to meet all parents before their children start school; please telephone to arrange a suitable time.
I look forward to meeting you personally before your child starts school.
The admission dates for reception children are September or January each year. All children will start school on a full time basis and the admission dates are according to dates of birth:
· children whose 5th birthday falls between 1 September and 30 April will start school in September
· children whose 5th birthday falls between 1 May and 31 August will start school in January
If a parent feels a child is not ready for full time school, the child can remain at nursery or Pre-school until the child reaches the statutory school starting age (the term following the child’s 5th birthday).
