Firstly, many thanks for taking the time to look at our website and consider Sholden C of E Primary School as an option for the education of your child. We know that choosing a school for your child can be a difficult and complicated process, especially during these times. We believe that our school is unique in many ways and that we can offer our children something different.
Parents considering applying for a place at our school are encouraged to visit the school at any time during the school year. In the Autumn term, we run tours on a more formal basis for small groups of parents, with an opportunity to talk to the Headteacher.

Unfortunately, due to the Covid 19 Lockdown, we and the other schools in the DEALT, are unable to offer prospective parent tours. We know this makes the process of choosing a school all the more difficult and are committed to providing opportunities to view our schools as soon as it is possible to do so.
What to do now
We know that choosing a school is such an important decision and we are happy to answer any questions you may have to support you in making the right choice for you and your child. If you have already booked an appointment to view the school, the office will contact you to arrange a virtual meeting. If you have not already booked to view our school and would like to talk to the headteacher, please contact the school to book a virtual appointment Tel 01304 374852 or email email@example.com
