Admission to Reception for 2021

We know how important applying for a place at primary school is and want to help you make an informed decision. Due to the current pandemic we are unable to offer our usual open days in school. However, we would like to invite all prospective parents and carers to join one of our virtual meetings in November, where we will provide you with information about the school, followed by a question & answer session with the leadership team and our Reception Phase leader. In addition to this, we have created a wonderful film that explains how and what the children learn in Reception at Coopers Lane. You can access the film here:

The virtual meetings will be held as follows:

An introduction to Coopers Lane with Q&A Session

Virtual presentation via Zoom

Thursday 5th November @ 9:30am

Tuesday 10th November @ 9:30am

Monday 16th November @ 4:30pm

Thursday 26th November @ 4:30pm

If you would like to book a place at one of the meetings, please contact Kerry in the school office:

We are also planning a limited number of visits to the school, but this will be dependent on the Covid-19 restrictions that are in place at the time. We request that parents who know the school and have visited before do not take up a space and that only one parent from each family books a place. The tour will consist of the outside areas and a walk through the reception classrooms only. We plan to have tours on Friday 6th November between 4:00pm-5:00pm with a maximum of  5 people in each group.

If you would like to book a place for one of the tours please contact Kerry in the school office:
