Reception Admissions for 2021

Thank you for expressing interest in our Reception class for your child. Due to the current Covid-19 situation, we have put in place additional measures that will help you get familiar with our school and our Reception class. Hopefully this information will support you making a decision in to apply for a Reception place at Central Primary.

  1. Video tour the school website

Please take a look of the video tour of our Reception classes




We also encourage you to visit our school blog and Twitter account to see what everyday life is like at Central. 

We also recommend watching a video about the Creative Arts learning at Central

2. Webinar and Q&A

We will host a Webinar on Microsoft Teams to tell you more about our school. The webinar will also have a Q&A session where you can ask questions that we will answer in the webinar. The webinar will be hosted by the Acting Headteacher, Miss Paalanen, and the EYFS lead Mr Jaffer. The webinar will be hosted on Tuesday 3rd November at 5 pm. You can access the webinar through this link. 

3. Limited tours of the school

We will only host tours after school with a maximum of 5 adults in a tour. We’d kindly ask only one adult from each household to attend. We will also ask everyone to wear a mask.

If you are applying for a Nursery place, please ensure you also apply for another setting in addition to Central Primary, as we are usually significantly oversubscribed and you may not get allocated one of our places.  

If you would like further information please do not hesitate to contact us. The best way to answer questions you may have is to visit and see our school at work and play.

The birth dates for Nursery Admission for 2020-2021 are 01/09/16- 31/08/17.
