Cherrywood Community Primary School

Admission Arrangements

Joining Cherrywood School 


As a primary school, children usually join our reception class each September.  If your child is due to start school in September 2023, we will be in touch in due course with information regarding transitions days for your child.  We look forward to welcoming you and your child to Cherrywood Community Primary School.  


We are aware that there are many other circumstances that can lead to children joining a new school at other times, for example leaving an infant school or moving house. 


If you are looking for a school place for your child please contact the school on 01252 547896 and make an appointment to speak to our Family Support Worker, Mrs Tammie Gabbott, who will then support you through this process. 



We are very aware that starting school at a different time to other children can be quite daunting.  At Cherrywood we have a team of children who are our New Arrival Ambassadors.  This team is led by Mrs Dawn Tagima our Cultural Ambassador, who ensures that they are trained and ready to support any new children in preparing to join the school and during those first few important weeks.
