Reception Intake 2022/23

Thank you for your interest in Golden Valley Primary School. We have a maximum of 60 places in each group (2 x classes of 30 pupils) and most years are full or nearly full at 60.


If you are considering sending your child to Golden Valley, arrangements have been made to provide information to prospective parents and carers. For many of you, this may include a meeting with the Headteacher or Deputy Headteacher and a tour of the school conducted by our Pupil Ambassadors. However, as I am sure you can appreciate in the current situation, it may not be possible for everyone to visit, and we hope that our virtual school tour will help you to gain an insight into what makes Golden Valley special.


Please see the September 2022 Intake letter below which provides details of arrangements this year. Please telephone the school office on 01275 853077 to book onto one of the meeting dates. 


The School Prospectus provides some information about what Golden Valley has to offer for your child. A copy of the prospectus can be read below.

I have out together a short video to provide prospective parents with information about what Golden Valley has to offer and how to go about applying for a school place. Together with the virtual school tour that can be viewed below, I hope this gives you a flavour of life at Golden Valley in this important time of you selecting and applying for a school place for your child.

Golden Valley Virtual School Tour

The Year 6 Pupil Ambassadors have created the following video to share with prospective Parents and Carers. They would normally do the tours 'face-to-face' but unfortunately this is not possible due to the restrictions in place during the COVID-19 pandemic. They produced the script themselves!
