New Starters 

We are delighted that you and your child are joining Priestley Primary School this coming September.  On behalf of the Staff, Governors, children and parents, it gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the team.  It will be a privilege to share the role of developing and nurturing your child’s learning and development with you over the next seven years.


Our usual procedure would be to invite you into school for a welcome meeting and organise several opportunities for your child to spend time in school with their new teacher and classmates.  However, in these unprecedented times, with schools currently not able to welcome all of its pupils, this will prove a little tricky. 


We have created this page to hopefully give you all the information you will need prior to your child starting with us in the absence of these usual visits.

Take a tour with our School Mascot 'Spikey' to experience a typical day in Reception class. This will give you a flavour of what your child can expect when they start in September.
