I know that some parents have not yet had the opportunity to visit the school and I would be pleased to show round any parents who do not know our school on the dates and times shown below. The purpose of offering an opportunity to visit us at this time is to make it easier for parents to decide whether or not they wish their child to be educated here at Feniscowles Primary School; it is not necessary, therefore, to complete the preference form before coming along to visit us.
School Visits - are for parents / guardians only – no children if at all possible - your child will have the opportunity to visit school at a later date.
Numbers for each visit are limited; therefore if you would like to see the school during the times shown could you telephone to make an appointment, the following dates are available:-
*Whilst we aim to finish by 10.00am please allow until 10.30am as on some occasions the sessions can overrun.
Please come to the Junior building on Livesey Branch Road
A letter telling you of the school allocated to your child will be sent out by the Council on 16th APRIL 2020. If you have applied on line you will be able to access this information immediately. If you have any concerns or questions concerning this letter or admission procedures in general, please do not hesitate to contact me.
I will write again after places have been allocated in order to give you a clear idea of the ways in which you can prepare your child for this vital step in their development.
