Welcome to Moorside Primary School

Reception Admissions

Welcome to our prospective parent admissions page. We would love to talk to you in more detail about life at Moorside.

Unlike many schools, we do not hold general open evenings, but instead like to take a more personal approach and show every family round individually. We think it is very important to visit during the school day and to see what the children are doing.

We have developed a virtual tour of our school which you can access here.

Once you have watched our virtual tour, we would love to talk to you in more detail about the school. To arrange a visit, please call 01524 66516 or email [email protected] and one of our leadership team will be happy to show you around.

Best wishes

Roger Shone, Headteacher

New Reception Starters – September 2023

We are very excited about meeting your children over the next few weeks. As we approach September, we will post new information here, with some being sent out individually. Please follow this link to read our welcome letter.

Our Curriculum in Reception

In Reception, the children follow the Early Years and Foundation Stage Curriculum (EYFS) before starting the National Curriculum in Year 1. Follow the this link to see how we approach EYFS to best meet the needs of children at Moorside.
