Reception September 2021


Choosing a school for your child is one of the biggest decisions you will make for them and we know you will be desperate to choose the one that is right. We are here to help you every step of the way and to answer your questions. Usually, you are able to tour around our school with some of our children and speak to staff to find out all about Swalecliffe. Unfortunately, that has not been possible this year due to the COVID restrictions in place.


Instead, we have tried to give you a glimpse of what the school can offer your child in our video. We have tried to help you see our school in action and the children loved helping to make the film! Mr Cooper, our Executive Headteacher, has also made a film of his usual welcome talk.

We wish you and your family well as you make this decision and hope to see you soon!


If you have a child due to start school in September 2021 (whose date of birth falls between 1st September 2016 and 31st August 2017) You can apply online for your child’s place at primary school from 5th November at (The closing date was 15th January 2021, but it is not too late to still apply for a place.)
