Thursday 16th April is National Allocation Day for students entering primary school for the first time.
On this long anticipated day, primary school offers will be sent to parents and carers of young children around the country. It’s a very exciting time for everyone in primary education, and for all the young families introducing their young ones to their first year of primary school.
Every new school year, we have the privilege of welcoming a whole host of excited new faces to school life. To make sure that no family ends up disappointed as the new school year approaches, we’d like to encourage parents and carers to accept their offer of a place at our school as soon as they are able.
The deadline for accepting offers in Wiltshire is 30th April. For more information, see the page on the council website here: https://www.swindon.gov.uk/info/20071/school_places_and_admissions/427/primary_school_places_and_admissions/4
All new children at Shaw are welcomed into a happy and positive environment where they are supported to thrive academically, socially, and spiritually.
The early school years are very important for every child. At our school, we place a strong emphasis on making sure each child is given the support they need to successfully adapt to school life, no matter the different challenges they may face.
To find out more about how your child will be helped in their transition, please take a look at the reception transition page on our website. If your child has been offered a place at our school, you won’t be disappointed. Make sure you accept your offer and let us know. We can’t wait to meet you and your child in September!
