Admissions 2022

Thank you for considering Silsden Primary School as the school that you wish your child to attend from September 2022. I know this is a huge decision for you, especially if this is your first experience, and I hope that the following will help answer some questions that you may have which could inform your decision.

We will be holding an Open Evening event for new parents on Thursday 25th November at 6.00pm

This will give you an opportunity to come into school and meet members of our reception team and get an idea of how we teach the Early Year Curriculum at our school. As you probably know we are moving to a new school building and site in January. You will be able to see some pictures of this development and ask us any questions about these new facilities.

Parents should take time to consider our school website and read our school prospectus and also look at our twitter page. Our Curriculum Newsletters and Home Learning ideas are full of information about the kinds of things children learn with us. This will answer many of your questions and give you an idea of what life is like at our school.

We have also attached a prospective parent booklet and a frequently asked questions sheet which we hope will cover any questions that parents who are considering their child’s primary school ask. If there are still further questions that are specific to the needs of your child then contact us directly at school and a member of the school’s Senior Leadership Team will do all they can to answer them.

If you would like to apply for a place at Silsden Primary School, you can apply here. The online admissions system will be available for Reception applications from 15 November 2021 until 15 January 2022 for children born between 1 September 2017 and 31 August 2018.

Once children have been allocated to our school, we will contact parents individually to set out the arrangements for transition and how we will be planning to prepare you and your children for starting in September 2022. We will also give you information about opportunities to visit our new school buildings.

I look forward to meeting many of you in the near future.
