Oakhill Primary School

Growing and Succeeding Together

Reception Intake - September 2021

Thank you for taking the time to find out more about our school for your child. Choosing a primary school can be daunting – you may feel a little overwhelmed with information and have lots of questions to ask.


This may be especially true given the current global Covid-19 Pandemic. However, we are a friendly and caring school and we hope to make the process a reassuring as possible for you and your family.


Due to the current restrictions we are very disappointed not be offering our traditional Open Days and Play & Stay Session for prospective families this term. We have always enjoyed and valued these sessions as they provide you with a real insight into life at Oakhill – something that is difficult to replicate with virtual tours online.


However, we are excited to be able to offer you the opportunity to book an Online Interactive Session with us or a 1:2:1 Personal after hours show around. Here you will have the opportunity to talk through the admissions process with the EYFS Team, ask questions along with providing you with a live show around of the Reception Classroom environment. We hope that these sessions will add a little 'personal touch' despite the current social distancing restrictions.
