Learning for Life

September 2019 Reception Admissions

We are pleased to be welcoming you to Fawbert & Barnard's in September either as a new or existing family.  We look forward to your child starting their educational journey with us.

There are several stages involved in making the admission process a successful transition in your child's life and we are sure you will agree how important it is to try to make this as smooth as possible.

When communicating with parents, we aim to be as paper-free as possible.  Therefore, please have a look around all areas of this website, in particular items on this class page and items on the school information tab above.

We have invited you and your child to attend our Teddy Bears Picnic and induction talk on Thursday 20 June 2019.  Please see our letter dated 9 May 2019 for further information and ensure that the attached papers are returned to us by Tuesday 4 June 2019.
