Welcome to The Arches Community Primary School! We are delighted that you are considering our school as the place for your child to begin their learning journey and would like to provide you with as much information as we can at this stage. Below are the pathways to entry but if you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact our Headteacher directly by emailing to have any queries or questions answered about starting with us and joining our purple family. We would love to show you around on a personalised tour of our school.

At The Arches, your child's first point of entry will be into our Foundation Stage Two class following their fourth birthday. Places here at school are also available in other year groups if your child chooses to join higher up the school or during an academic year.
