First Time Admissions to School

Welcome to our Overdale Community.


Starting school can be both exciting and worrying for children and parents. We are also in unprecedented times where there is a great deal of uncertainty around. Our brilliant team at Overdale Infant School will be working hard over the next few weeks to develop a different approach to welcoming our new families and preparing virtual meetings to try and make starting school as smooth as possible.


We understand that there will be many questions and concerns about what next year will look like.  At the moment we are unsure what will happen, but we are continuing with plans to welcome all children in to school in September.  We will be guided by government advice and will inform you as soon as possible. 


Emails have been sent out during the week beginning 15th June, with information about which class your child will be in and who the class staff will be, along with a link to a video presentation for new parents and carers.  You can also watch the video by following the link on this page.


We know that new parents may have many questions and we have created an email address for you to use:
