You may be aware that nationally, there are many families who have not applied for school places for September 2021. One potential reason is that nursery numbers have been down due to the lockdown. Families may not have been aware of the application window in January 2021 as a result of this. If you are aware of any family with school-aged children who have not applied to a school, please inform them that they need to do so as soon as possible. The NYCC admissions details are as follows:
Welcome to Applegarth
We have created this dedicated section on the website and created a Reception Starters Induction Booklet to give you an overview of our Reception class. The version on this page was written for the September 2020 intake. We will be producing an updated version in early May for this year’s cohort.
We also filmed a transition video in 2020 in order to give your child a feel for our classrooms, the layout of the school and to meet our Reception teachers and support staff. This may change for the coming academic year, but you may like to watch it if you have not had the chance to visit in person yet.
I look forward to meeting with you all in person in the near future. If there is anything further we can do to help you, please fill in the contact form on the website.
Mr J Peoples (Headteacher)
Reception Transition Information

Please read the following documents very carefully. The Reception Starters Induction Booklet contains key information about the school day, routines, uniform, the curriculum and much more. All About Me gives your child the opportunity to tell us all about themselves. This is vital transition information and parent/carer feedback indicates that it is a very enjoyable (and somewhat emotional) exercise. You can now place online orders for uniform and have it delivered straight to your door: https://school-shop.co.uk/school/applegarth-primary-school/
Get to know our staff and have fun listening to our favourite stories…
