Opportunity to find out more about the school
We recognise the importance for you to have the opportunity to visit the school, before you choose to apply for either Nursery or Reception. We provide two opportunities for this to happen:
1. We host an Introduction to St. Luke's meeting, applicable for both Nursery and Reception, hopefully hosted in the school, where we tell you all about our school and specifically what the Early Years provision is like.
2. We host tours of the school so that you get to see first hand, how children and their provision develop as they grow through the school.
The dates for the meetings and tours are listed below. If we find closer to the time, that we cannot host events in school due to enhanced Covid restrictions, we will provide updates here. Last year for example, we moved the Introductory meeting on line.
If you would like to attend one of these events, because numbers are limited, please email the school on: firstname.lastname@example.org clearly stating the event you would like to attend, the date and the time. That way, we can retain your email address, confirm your booking with you and communicate directly with you if there are any changes to the arrangements.
Introduction to St. Luke's meetings: (50 people per event)
Wednesday 10th November 2021 @8:00am
