Starting School in Reception

We have two reception classes here at Coleham.  The admissions number for this Reception year and future years is 60.  A number of open days will be held between October to January, to allow the parents of the new Reception intake to look round the school.  This year's Open Days for the Reception 2020-21 intake are as follows:

  • Tuesday 12th November - 9:15am (FULL)
  • Wednesday 20th November - 1:15pm (FULL)
  • Tuesday 26th November - 1.15pm (FULL)
  • Thursday 28th November 9.15am (FULL)
  • Monday 2nd December at 9.15am - New date

 If you would like to attend one of these sessions, please contact the school office. Please note that spaces are limited to 8 persons for each session, and will be allocated on a first come first served basis. Due to limited space around the school and the tour structure, we request that you do not bring small children with you on the day. 

Parents are encouraged by Shropshire Council to submit applications on-line by logging on to www.shropshire.gov.uk/schooladmissions by Wednesday 15th January 2020. If you do not have internet access, or have questions regarding the application process, please contact the Admissions Team at Shirehall on 0345 678 9008.

 For those children granted a place at Coleham Primary School, we have a comprehensive induction programme to ease the children into school life.  A series of induction visits for parents and children take place in the summer term prior to the new school year in September.
