The Brigshaw Learning Partnership, is the admission authority for: Brigshaw High School, Allerton Bywater; Kippax Ash Tree, Kippax Greenfield, Kippax North, Methley and Swillington Primary schools.
We hold an annual Open Day for interested parents to look round the school with the Headteacher. You are also very welcome to look round our school at any time of the year. Please contact the school office to make an appointment.
Entry into Reception Class September 2019
Parents and carers of children starting school in September 2019 will be informed of their school offer via email on national offer day, Tuesday 16th April 2019. School will be closed for the Easter break at this time so please leave a message on our answer machine to confirm your child's place or call us on Tuesday 23rd April when school reopens. We will then add you to our acceptance list and send you further information about your child's induction in the following weeks.
Once we know our exact intake, we begin the process of ensuring every child’s entry into school is happy and relaxed. In the Summer Term before the September start, parents come to a Welcome Meeting with their children to find out more about how we work and ask any questions they might still have.
This meeting also gives parents the opportunity to meet and talk with the Reception class teacher and other support staff. Soon after, children are visited in their nursery setting and invited to spend time in the Reception class as part of our ‘Jump Up’ days. At the start of September, just before starting school, each parent has a one-to-one meeting with our Reception class staff.
