Joining Our School


Year 2 Newsletter 2 2.11.21Children Starting Year 3 in September 2022

At this time, you will be considering your child’s transfer to Year 3 in September 2022.  In order to help you make this very important decision about your child’s future, and provide you with as much information as possible about our school, We would like to invite you to visit our happy and successful school.

We have arranged three opportunities to visit us:

~ Open Afternoon on Thursday 7th October 1:30pm – 3:00 pm
~ Open Evening on Thursday 4th November 6:00pm – 7:30 pm *
~ Open Morning on Tuesday 16th November 9:15am – 12:00 pm

* please note that the Open Evening planned for Thursday 4th November has been postponed. The new date for this event is Thursday 2nd December 6:00pm – 7:30pm which will be a virtual event. 

Open Afternoon and Morning
These days provide an opportunity to visit us and see our school in action. On these occasions, you will be given a guided tour of the school led by some of our Year 6 pupils and have the opportunity to visit working classrooms. My Senior Leadership Team and I are available to chat on an informal basis throughout these times. We would request that face coverings are worn by the adults and that only one adult per family attends. If you, or your child, are displaying any Covid symptoms, please do not attend and an alternative visit can be arranged.

Open Evening
We also hope that you will come along to our Prospective Parents’ Evening. Through a short presentation, we will be able to tell you about our school and why we believe that Cove Junior School will be the right choice for your child next September. You will then be able to visit classrooms; meet members of staff; ask questions and observe groups of children enjoying a variety of curriculum activities taking place around the school.

If you would like to join us for any of these visits, please contact our school office where Mrs Trickett or Mrs Yung will be able to allocate you a guided tour slot or book a place for the evening meeting. Your children are welcome to accompany you during all these visits.

You should be receiving a letter with an application form and guidance notes from your child’s infant school. It is important that you apply for a place at a junior school following these notes. The application process opens on 1st November 2021 and it is most important that you return the application form before the HCC Admissions deadline on 15th January 2022. Failure to do so by this date may affect the chances of your child securing a place.

We have been informed that letters to parents offering a junior school place will be sent out by the County Council on 19th April 2022.

We have also created a newsletter for potential new parents which provides more information about our open events.
