Hello and welcome to all the families who are beginning the process of admission applications for their child starting in Reception in September 2021. 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 would normally invite 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, but unfortunately, during these uncertain times, we are unable to.

This year we have had to make some adaptations. Here you will find a brief information leaflet and a video 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 2020 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
