Abbeymead Primary School

Welcome to Abbeymead Primary School

Reception Starters - September 2022

Welcome to all the new children and families that have been allocated a place at our school, from September 2022. We are looking forward to getting to know you and can't wait for you to join our school.


Starting school is a milestone, not only for your child but also for parents/carers. You may be excited, or perhaps a little concerned about your child taking these first steps towards independence at school. At Abbeymead Primary School, we aim to build a good relationship between home and school, so that everybody involved can ensure your child gets the very best induction that is happy, settled and positive. 

If you have been unable to attend any of school tours you may be interested to watch our Virtual tour, which we filmed last year. You can access the link by clicking on the image below.
