New Parents 2020

 

Welcome to Batheaston Church School

           

Welcome to Batheaston Church School, we are delighted that you have chosen to send your child to our very special school. 

Batheaston Church School is a vibrant, nurturing, and happy place nestled in the heart of Batheaston village.  We are blessed with beautiful grounds which provides an exceptional outdoors space, used by all. We are extremely proud of our school community, in which we have formed through genuine parental partnerships and active links with our local community and the Church.  We provide a caring and supportive environment for our children to thrive and for all our parents to feel valued.

Over the coming weeks we will ensure that you, as new parents, receive all the relevant information and support we can provide.  Given these uncertain times, we want to ensure that your child and family have the best possible transition into Primary school. We have a dedicated team of staff who are now experts at thinking creatively and adapting to the current situation. As and when we are able to open the school and finalise details of your Induction, you will of course be the first to know.

In the meantime, you will soon receive, via email, an induction pack. This will include all the information you will need before your child starts, including several forms which will need to be returned to school.

This website page will be continually updated with links and documents to support you. Copies of the induction pack and relevant forms are now available below as a file attachment. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Stay safe and we look forward to meeting you all soon.
