Primary admissions are co-ordinated by Wokingham Borough Council in line with their Admissions Policy.
Parents/guardians need to register their child with Wokingham Borough Children Services’ Admission Section. Please contact the Admissions Section for a copy of the “A Parent’s Guide to Primary School Admissions” booklet or visit the Wokingham Borough Council’s website www.wokingham.gov.uk.
Rivermead Primary School is a two form entry school which means our allocation for each year group is limited to 60 pupils. When there are too many applications received for places available at the school then the Admissions Criteria will be applied as stated in their booklet.
Once a child has been allocated a place at Rivermead Primary School, the school will send a letter to the parents/guardians confirming their place. The term preceding their start parents/guardians will be invited to a ‘New Parents Evening’. There they will meet their child’s teacher and be given a New Entrants Pack which holds all the information needed for when the child starts school. This meeting is also an opportunity to answer any questions or worries that parents/guardians might have.
