Reception Class Home Visits

Home visits will take place during the first few weeks in September. This is an opportunity for us to see your child in a relaxed environment which is familiar to them and a chance for your child to share things they are interested in. It will also be an opportunity to ask any questions and discuss anything you may want to that is personal to your family. There will be an opportunity to sign up for home visits at a time convenient to you on the Welcome Day on Wed 4th Sep.

For places in our Reception classes, please see the Admissions page and submit all applications via Wiltshire Council.

Transition to secondary

During upper Key Stage 2, the children experience many opportunities to visit the Wellington Academy secondary school. They will take part in sporting, creative and curriculum based activities and also get to know the Academy staff before any transition events take place. In Year 5, the children are offered taster days and, in Year 6, an organised programme of events takes place. As with entry to Reception classes, any children who need extra visits or support will be catered for with a personalised programme.

For places at the Wellington Academy, please see their Admission Policy and submit all applications via Wiltshire Council.
