Virtual Tour - Starting School September 2021

Virtual Tour - September 2021 Intake

We want to wish you all a very warm (if virtual) welcome to Petersgate Infant School. 

Choosing the right school for your child is such an important decision. Usually at this time of year we welcome prospective families the opportunity to visit our school during a typical school day so you can see first hand what we at Petersgate Infant can offer your child as they embark on their school learning journey. 

This year we need to do things differently to ensure that we keep everyone safe. Although we had hoped to provide smaller group tours with appropriate PPE, we have been strongly advised against doing so. 

Therefore, we have a different option for you so that you can still discover our school and we hope it provides you with all the information you need to make this decision for your child and their future.  Families tend to get 'a feel' for the school that is right for their child when walking around it and meeting the team but sadly, you will not have that same opportunity and for that we apologise.  We hope that our online school tour and introduction to Petersgate gives you sense of our school all that we have to offer. 

Our brand-new school tour available here.

Should you require a more in-depth conversation with our team to discuss your child's additional needs, please contact the school office:

Also, please rest assured that we have robust transition arrangements in place so children will have plenty of opportunities to get to know our school before they arrive.

For the children who joined our school this year in September we put a virtual transition plan in place. They could meet the team, take a tour of the classrooms and visit the school in small groups in September. 

You can view the induction videos below where you will find further information about our approach, curriculum, photos of the Early Years environment, the induction program that was in place for this year and our Starting School videos for the September 2020 cohort of children. 

To apply for a place at Petersgate Infant School in September 2021, you should apply from 1st November 2020 and before 15th January 2021.  Online applications can be made here.

Meanwhile, stay safe and we hope to see or hear from you soon.
