Prae Wood Primary School

Everyone Valued, Everyone Learning

Welcome to the website for Prae Wood Primary School

RECEPTION admission September 2021

Although we are keen to welcome you to visit our school, we are not able to offer our usual system of tours for prospective parents for admission in September 2021 

For this year we have devised a system that can offer you an opportunity to see our school in action virtually and then to visit the site in real-life, without any staff or children on site.

Please enjoy our VIRTUAL VISIT video below, which gives you a taste of the day-to-day teaching and environment at Prae Wood, then contact us to book onto one of our tour dates (details below)


We can offer limited in-person tours on either a Wednesday evening or a Saturday morning. These tours must be booked via the school office, and we must ask you to observe the following:

  • Tours will be conducted by our Headteacher, Mrs Jenny Sheppard with only 5 prospective parents at a time, to adhere to the current 'rule of 6'
  • Parents must arrive on time and meet in the main car park. Masks must be worn for the duration of the tour, which will last approximately 30 minutes
  • Tours will be booked on a 'first-come, first-served' basis and are primarily for families new to the school, who have not previously attended a similar visit
  • Priority will be given to those living within our catchment area. If you live outside this, we will happily take your details and let you know the day before the tour if we are able to accommodate you.
  • Only 1 parent per family can attend, no children. We are not able to take multiple date bookings per family, so as to offer the visits to as many prospective families as possible.

Thank you for your understanding in observing these directives, which follow the current Covid-19 guidelines in place for everybody's safe movement around our school site 

We look forward to welcoming you to Prae Wood Primary School
