Starting School in September 2021

If your child is due to start school in Reception in September 2021 then this page will hopefully provide you with some important information that will help you to make your decision about whether Park Primary is the school for you!

Visits to the School
Ordinarily, we would urge you to visit us during the school day so that you can see us in action and get a sense of day to day life at Park but unfortunately, given the situation with Covid, we are unable to offer visits as we usually would. 

In recent weeks, we have offered tours of the school to small, socially distanced groups whilst the children have not been on site. Given the restrictions outlined on Saturday 31st October, we will unfortunately not be able to continue with these visits in the coming weeks. If the restrictions are eased ahead of the Admissions Deadline (15th January 2021), we will happily offer tours to those who have requested them as soon as we are able to do so.

Frequently Asked Questions
When we show families around our school, we find that there are some common questions they are keen to know the answer to. We have compiled the most common questions and provided information in response to them. If you find that you have an unanswered question, please don’t hesitate to contact the school and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

Getting to Know Park
Please read some recently stated comments from our 22nd October Parent View Questionnaire.

If you haven’t already seen it, we recommend that you take a look at this video about our school which was kindly created for us by one of our families, as it gives you a flavour of our offer at Park.

Additionally, we also recommend that you take a look at our weekly newsletters to get a sense of what’s happening in school on a weekly basis. If you scroll down to the bottom of the page, you will be able to see previous newsletters.

We created a Welcome to Park video for our new families for September 2020. It may be of interest to you. 

We have a Home Learning channel on YouTube which may also be of interest.

Virtual Tour
We will be sharing a virtual tour of the school with you in the near future. Please keep checking back on our website over the next week or two if you are interested in seeing it.

Our Admissions are handled by the London Borough of Newham and therefore you must apply to them for a school place. Please see the Admissions Page of our website for further details.
