Starting School at Barkisland

Starting school is one of the most important milestones in a child's life. It is a very exciting time both for the child and the family but may also provoke lots of questions too! 

If your child is due to start school, appointments can be made through the school office to meet with the Headteacher and have a tour of our school.  These appointments can be made from September to December the year before your child is due to begin school.

Children will start school on a part time basis in September for the first two weeks.  They will attend school for either a morning or afternoon session.  This is an important transisition time for your child to get used to a busy school environment and also for the school staff to get to know your child well.  After the first two weeks, they will attend full-time.
