Preparing for School

Our school uniform helps to define the ethos of our school. It helps give our children pride in our school and makes them ambassadors for our school in our local community.

School uniform is compulsory. The school uniform can be bought directly, using the school uniform link on our website.   Alternatively, school uniform can be bought from the school office.

Please could we ask that all children wear the following uniform every day:

After reading through the information on this website, we hope that you would like to see the school at work so that you can decide if ours is the right school for your child. We invite you to contact the School Secretary to make an appointment.

The school aims to provide a place for each child living in the parish of Shillingstone. Enquiries from potential pupils living outside the parish boundaries are welcome, if places are available.

Children will normally start school at the beginning of the academic year in which they will attain five years of age. We admit 15 pupils into our Reception class each year.

Entry to Shillingstone CE VA Primary School is in accordance with Dorset County Council Policy. You can read our full Admissions Policy on this website - it can be found in the Information for Parents section.
