Starting Reception

Hello and welcome to all the families who are beginning the process of admission applications for their child starting in Reception in September 2022. We know that starting School is a very important and exciting time, and that it can also be a little bit daunting when choosing the right school for your child.

During November and December we welcome children and their families into school to have a tour and gain a little insight into Banks Road. This is a wonderful opportunity to see our school in action, meet the head teacher and the staff team and get a 'feel' of the school. We would love to meet you all.  Please contact us if you would like to book a tour.

Here you will find a brief information leaflet introducing our school. We hope that this web page will provide you with some useful information and will go some way to addressing any questions that you might have about our school. 

The 2021 handbook will also hopefully give you some idea of what to expect during your time with us and about starting reception.

If you have any questions, or would like us to post out a hard copy of the documents, please do not hesitate to ring the school office on: 0115 917 9881.
