Welcome Families of Reception Children 2021/2022


New Families

If you are thinking about joining Balksbury Federation at either the Infant or Junior School, or have already made your decision, you can rest assured that you will be joining a federated team who want the best for your child - for our Vision and Values please click here


We pride ourselves that your child’s needs will be met so that starting school, or changing school, is a positive and happy time. We believe that parents know their children best, so we will listen to your concerns and wishes to ensure your child settles into our school happily, and quickly.


What will I need to do to join the Infant or Junior School?

Your first, and most important step, is to come and have a look around.  In doing this, you will get a feel for the school you are joining and the federation.  During your visit, you will be able to look at both schools in the federation setting, talk to staff and children. If you would like to talk to a parent too, we can arrange this for you.


Year R

As soon as you have your place confirmed, we will contact you to invite you in to answer all the questions you will have about your child starting school.  In addition, we have a highly successful and praised transition programme called Butterflies.


Coming from another school

We will ensure there are opportunities for your child to visit before they join us full time.  We will also work closely with you to ensure we have as much information as we can to ensure that your child settles in quickly and happily.


For all admission enquiries, please contact:
