Reception Intake September 2019
Please click here for a detailed timetable of the Reception application process:
Applications for Reception admission places for September 2019 open online on 5th November and close on Tuesday 15th January 2019.
Allocation of Reception places for September 2019 are made by Gloucestershire County Council (GCC), and National Offer Day is Tuesday 16th April 2019.
Parents have until Monday 29th April 2019 to accept the place that has been offered or to request re-consideration.
Once GCC have confirmed to us those that have accepted, we will send out ‘Welcome letters’ to parents on Monday 20th May (please note, this may take a day or two to arrive in the post).
We understand that parents may be excited and perhaps a little anxious about their child’s first days in school. In order to allay any concerns and provide an opportunity for you to ask questions, the welcome letter will give you details of an induction meeting on Tuesday 11th June at 6pm at Waterwells, that all parents that have accepted a place for their child at Waterwells, should attend.
At the meeting you will receive your school welcome pack and discuss our settling in procedures for your child in September. Please do not bring your children to the meeting as it will not be suitable for them.
Timetables, class details and ‘Stay and Play’ sessions will be sent out on Thursday 21st June, and Stay and Play sessions will then take place on Thursday 4th July 2019, details of which will be included with your timetable. You will be allocated one of the following time slots: 9.15-945, 10-10.30 and 10.45-11.15.
We look forward to meeting you.
