Open day event 13th November 2021 and Virtual Tour of the School

Welcome to The Richard Clarke First School
  • Image result for Virtual Tour Clip ArtWe are now holding an Open Day event on Saturday 13th November 2021 in the morning to welcome all new prospective families in, to have a look around our wonderful school.  Please telephone the school office to book a slot for your tour.  Choosing your child’s first school is an important decision and there is no better way to get a feel for the ethos of a school, than by going in to have a first hand tour.  In the meantime we would like you to have a look at all the videos below to help you meet staff, children and parents and get a feel for our school.  Please also look around the website to find out more.  We hope this will help you decide to choose us for your child’s education.  I know I’m biased, but I think we’re pretty special!  Feel free to give the school a ring if you have any questions or would like to make an appointment for an individual tour after the school day and/or have a socially distanced, informal chat if you can’t make the open day event.  We look forward to welcoming you.

Mrs Kay Hanson, Headteacher

‘We were concerned reception would be such a big jump from the nursery experience, however he has settled in so well, like a duck to water, it’s a pleasure to drop him off everyday and see the lovely welcoming environment.  The reception class and dedicated playground space is so perfect for their transition to school.’ New Reception parent
