Potential New Starters 2021

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for considering  Shobnall Primary School for your child. We are delighted that you have chosen to explore our school for your child’s nursery or primary education. Ordinarily, we would be inviting you to an open evening to find out a little more about us. However, due to the current situation we will be making changes to our usual routines to ensure that all visitors, parents and carers have the relevant information ready to make their applications in preparation for the deadline in January.

Our website will have all of the information you need to help support your application, and will be updated with further resources as and when they are ready. For example, we will be uploading an open evening video to our website imminently which will take you on a virtual tour of our school.

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 your applications. The film below was prepared for our new starters this September and tells you a little more about us!
