New starters: Welcome to Owls Class!

Dear Parents and Carers,

I am writing to invite you to a meeting held on Zoom to discuss your child’s potential start at Long Wittenham Primary School in September 2021.

These uncertain times have meant that we have not been able to introduce ourselves to you in person and welcome you into our lovely school. COVID-19 has led to many restrictions but, as a school, we have continued to stay open and manage the risks posed by this virus incredibly well. As yet, we have had no positive cases at all.

In light of the government restrictions, we have had a video made of our school and you can see this on the opening page of our website at: Please take a look to gain an insight into our work ethics, teaching and learning. You will also see our school prospectus (under the Our School tab) and lots of information about the way in which we work with our whole school community bringing that family feel into our unique location.

In order for you all to meet me and our Early Years teacher, Mrs Rowley, in person, I have arranged the following Zoom sessions where you will be given the opportunity to ask as many questions as you like in order to help you make the right decision for your child. Starting school is so vitally important and I know that you will make the right choice for you and your family.

In order to receive details about the Zoom sessions, please contact our school office via telephone or email to book a place and Mrs Folkman will provide you with all of the details. I have tried to provide 3 dates and times taking into account working hours etc. so I hope you’ll find a suitable one. Should none of these dates or times fit with your busy schedule, I am more than happy to arrange a separate meeting with you. Please just let us know.

Monday 14th December at 10am

Monday 14th December at 5pm

Wednesday 16th December at 1pm

We very much look forward to meeting you and welcoming your child into Long Wittenham Primary School.

Very best wishes for a safe and wonderful Christmas.

Alison Bellingham, Head teacher
