New Starters 2021

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for choosing  Shobnall Primary School for your child! We are delighted that you have chosen our school for your child’s nursery or primary education. 

Our website will have all of the information you need to help support your induction to our setting, and will be updated with further resources as and when they are ready. For example, we will be uploading a welcome booklet which will tell you all about our exciting new curriculum for Early Years!

We understand that your child starting nursery or school for the first time is a very important step, which even in normal circumstances, can be quite daunting. Therefore if you require any support, please do not hesitate to contact us using the following email address:


We look forward to welcoming you formally to our school. The film below was prepared for our new starters last September, but will tell you a little more about us!
