Information for Parents of Children Starting in Reception 

Welcome to Fynamore!


We are very pleased that you are considering choosing our school as the next step in your child’s learning journey.

Starting school is an exciting time for parents and children alike (albeit a little daunting at times, as well). Our hope is to make this transition as smooth as possible and support your child as they begin school life.

We look forward to meeting your family!

Applications for Reception Places

The preferred method of application is online via the Wiltshire Council website.

For further information, or for a paper application form, please ring 01225 713010 (paper forms should be returned to Wiltshire Council, not school).


We have included some quick links from this page that may prove useful in supporting your child at home as you prepare for their first year at school. We have included a link to our Early Years information page, which has more details about Reception Class activities and what to expect when your child starts school. There are also links to two external websites with useful information and advice to help you support your child's transition to school (BBC Bitesize and the Professional Association for Childcare and Early Years - PACEY).

Please click on the purple buttons above to access these additional resources.
