First Time Admissions to School

Welcome to our Overdale Community.


Starting school can be both exciting and worrying for children and parents. We continue to be in unprecedented times which adds to the uncertainty. Our brilliant team at Overdale Infant School have been working hard to develop a different approach to welcoming our new families and preparing virtual  tours and meetings to try and make choosing a school and then starting school as smooth as possible.


We understand that there will be many questions and concerns about how transition to school will happen and even what school will look like.  We are continually updating our plans to welcome our new cohort of Reception children in to school in September 2021.  We will be guided, as always, by government advice and will keep parents and carers informed at every step. 


Below you will find a welcome video message from our Head Teacher Mrs Hayley Holmes. We have tried to give prospective parents and carers a feel for our school. We are incredibly proud of our school and the community we serve and we look forward to welcoming new members to this for the new academic year 2021. Below the link to the video you will find a link to a 360 degree virtual tour of our school. Please have a look and peep inside the classrooms. 


We know that new parents may have many questions and we have created an email address for you to use, alternatively you can complete the contact form lower down on this page and a member of staff will get back to you as soon as possible. 





Huge thanks to Igor Burbela at ZigZag Photography for donating his time and expertise to help us create the wonderful tour and video.
