Admissions Information

Welcome to families who have been offered a place in our Reception setting for September 2023.  Because over 30 children have been offered a place, I am delighted to be able to share with you that we will have 2 very small Reception classes.  Your child will be in a class of less than 20 children.  This will give your child an excellent start for their statutory school journey.  You will soon receive a letter from us inviting you to come in for a meeting with our EYFS Lead.  In July, your child will be able to come and meet their new teacher and classmates.  We look forward to meeting you very soon.
Bearwood Primary School offers pupils a quality education in a secure, happy and stimulating environment.  Through equality of opportunity we provide a broad and balanced curriculum which is designed to meet the individual needs of every child.  Each child is encouraged to become an independent learner and accept responsibility for her/his own actions. We aim to develop in our children positive attitudes towards school life and their role in the wider community.

In-Year Admissions

An in-year admission is when you apply to a school outside the normal admissions round and at a time when your child should already be attending school.

You would normally be making an in-year application if you have recently moved, you have arrived from another country or you want to transfer your child to another school.

If your child is already in school and you are thinking about a transfer to another school, you will need to be aware that many classes will already be full and we may not be able to immediately offer a place. 

To apply for a place at Bearwood Primary School, you will need to make an application via Wokingham Council’s website which can be found using the following link:
