Starting School in Reception

We have two reception classes here at Coleham.  The admissions number for this Reception year and future years is 60. 

The closing date for 2021-22 applications - Friday 15th January 2021 - has now passed. If you have recently moved into the area or are planning to do between now and the start of the 2021-22 academic year and require a Reception place for September 2021, please contact please contact the Admissions Team at Shirehall on 0345 678 9008 for advice and guidance. 

We recommend that 2021-22 Reception Year applicants visit the EYFS section in our "Joining" tab to watch a series of videos aimed at giving  you and your child a real insight into a typical day at school for our EYFS children. 

For those children allocated a place at Coleham Primary School, we have a comprehensive induction programme to ease the children into school life.  A series of induction visits for parents and children take place in the summer term prior to the new school year in September.
