New Reception Intake 2021

Dear Prospective Parent,

Normally, at this time of year we would be ‘flinging’ open our doors and inviting you into the school to see Glenfall ‘in action’

However, due to the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic we are limited to what we are able to offer 2021 Prospective parents.

Gloucestershire County Council and local Headteacher Associations have recommended that schools do not hold open days or evenings, as such gatherings could breach national guidance on mass gatherings and also compromise the safe systems of infection control that schools have put in place to protect children and staff.

We acknowledge that choosing a school for your child is an important and difficult decision to make. We also acknowledge  that you need to find out as much as you can about a school before making your choices for school places by 15th January 2021.  We are therefore planning to offer prospective parents an opportunity to view virtual tours of the school, interviews with key members of staff and videos of pupils sharing their highlights of life at Glenfall. These will be available on this website by 23rd October 2020

We will also be offering prospective parents the opportunity to join a Zoom Meeting with Mr Mitchell (Headteacher) and Mrs Whyte (Reception Teacher) on Wednesday 11th November at 7.30pm. This will comprise of a short presentation and an opportunity to ask questions. The link to join this meeting is detailed below.

We are really disappointed to not be able to invite you into the school this year, but hope that our alternative arrangements will allow you to get a good insight into life at Glenfall.

I look forwards to hopefully meeting you on the Zoom meeting on 11th November.

Anthony Mitchell

Headteacher
