Prospective Parents

Admission arrangements consultation - Orrell Holgate 2020

Parents who have received a place at Holgate

If your child receives a place at Holgate, we will be in touch with you in May to set up a meeting for new parents and some visits to school for your child. All of the information you need will be given at that meeting. 

If your child has special educational needs or other needs that will need a health care plan putting in place,  please make an appointment with Mrs Worrall as soon as you get your place so that we can put all of the necessary steps in place.

School Tours

Our Headteacher Mrs Worrall or Deputy Headteacher Mrs Baxter will show you around the school - as we are a small school it is a good first opportunity to get to know families from our community.

During the Autumn Term we have a high volume of people looking around the school so we try to limit tours to one day per week if possible but will try to be flexible and accommodate you. During the tours there are sometimes 3-4 groups of parents. If you would prefer a private conversation/longer discussion about your child's needs please say so when booking the tour so that we can accommodate you.

As part of the new starter tours you will receive a general tour of the school before spending about 10 minutes in the Reception indoor and outdoor classroom where Mrs Houghton and her team can speak to you about the first year at school.
