Choosing the right school for your child is perhaps one of the most important decisions you will make! Here at Sowerby Village, we’re keen to support you in making the right choice and would encourage you to visit our school to meet with Mrs Lynsey Mitchell, our Headteacher and see the school in session. Arrangements for such a visit can be made by contacting the school’s administration team on 01422 831971.
We hold regular open events when parents and prospective parents are invited to join in the excitement and spend time alongside your child joining in with the activities on offer. These events are publicised in the school and newsletters, as well as on the school website.
To ensure your child is fully prepared and confident about starting school with us at Sowerby Village, we arrange a range of transition events. For example in Nursery, a series of sessions for parents and children to attend together, in Reception transition days prior to the summer holidays and for in-year transfers, a taster day when your child will meet staff and children in their new class.
For more information on the school's admission policy please see the information on the Local Authority Website which can be viewed here.
