Home Page Shakespeare Primary School “It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves.” William Shakespeare

Hello and welcome to the beginning of your Shakespeare journey! We hope that you're as excited as we are that you have a place at our wonderful school. We absolutely can't wait to meet you all. You're going to have so much fun learning, making new friends and taking part in lots of exciting experiences and opportunities at your new 'big school'. Keep your eye on our school facebook page and website for information regarding transition. We will be in touch soon! 

Lots of love,

It is with deep regret that we’ve had to make the difficult decision to cancel our new entrant’s afternoon sessions (5th to the 8th of July)
This hasn’t been an easy decision, we were very excited to meet our new little people however, given our own recent bubble closure and similar local situations, we feel like this is the most sensible option. We cannot risk mixing nursery bubbles at this moment in time, especially in our own school environment.
We’re sure you will be as disappointed as we are however, please keep an eye on dojo for further information.
Just to put your minds at ease, last year’s transition only happened in September, and we believe it was one of the calmest and most successful transitions we’ve ever experienced. 
We apologise for any inconveniences, but we know you’ll understand our reasoning behind this. We only have the best interests of our future and present families at heart. Thank you.  x x x
If you have any queries, please send a private message and we’ll get back to you ASAP

Here is our 'Passport to Big School'. Please take a look at it with your child.

Thank you to everyone who managed to attend tonight's Zoom meeting. Here is the PowerPoint we shared. Please get in touch if you have any queries.

Hello lovely families! Here is a brief transition timetable for the next few months. Please note that dependent on how well we follow the government road map, these dates could be subject to change (fingers crossed we don't have to change anything). We can't wait to meet you all.

Getting Ready to Start School
