Reception New Starters September 2020

Welcome to Bishop Lonsdale Primary School and Nursery. Although we would like to be meeting you and your children in person, due to coronavirus we are unable to do so.

Instead we have provided you with a PowerPoint which you can download at the bottom of this page. The PowerPoint has information about the staff, how the Early Years Unit works, uniform and school meals.

If you have any problems downloading this document please do not hesitate to contact school.


New starter packs with additional information including admissions forms will be available for collection from Monday 13th July 2020. Please collect these from the main entrance between 10.00am and 2.00pm.
