Dear Parents of Reception children for September 2020
If you have received an offer of a place at Shotley Bridge Primary School, please accept the offer of a place by 30th April . Durham Local authority will then inform us who our new starters are. As soon as Durham supplies us with your details we will contact you to start preparing you all for transition to Shotley Bridge Primary School. We always take great care to make transition into our school, throughout our school and onwards from our school, as successful and positive an experience as possible. This will undoubtedly be of paramount importance during this unique and unprecedented year and we will do everything we can to allay any worries you may have.
Mr. M. C. Bell
Offers of a Primary School Place
Information from Durham Local Authority
Your child will receive one offer of a school place. If he/she could not be offered a place at one of your preferred schools, he/she has been offered a place at the nearest school to your home address that has places available.
How you will be contacted with an offer of a school place
If you completed a primary school application online, you should have received an email with an offer of a school place. If you haven’t received an email you should log in to the Parent Portal.
If you completed a paper application you will receive an offer of a school place by letter.
Accept your offer
You should accept the offer of a school place within two weeks of the offer being made. You should do this in your Parent Portal account if you applied for a place online, or by return post if you did not apply online.
Make sure you respond to avoid the offer of a school place being withdrawn and the school place being offered to someone else.
