Children Starting School in Year R at Orchard Infant School in September 2020


If you have applied for a school place for your child who is due to start school in September 2020, you will have been notified of your child's allocated school by Hampshire County Council on Thursday 16th April 2020. 

If you have not done so already, you will need to accept your school place with Hampshire County Council.


Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, we are currently unable to arrange dates for you to visit the school for induction sessions.  We will endeavour to keep you informed during this difficult period.


When the COVID-19 lockdown is over, we will require you to confirm your address and child’s date of birth by asking you to bring specific documentation into the school office.


Children Starting Year R in September 2021

If your child is due to start school in September 2021, you can apply for a school place from November 2020.  We will be hosting tours of our school for parents in the Autumn term 2020.  Please get in touch in the Autumn of 2020 to find out our tour dates and to reserve your place.
