Learning at the heart of everything we do

 Reception Intake 2020

We would like to extend a warm welcome to you and your family, whether this is your first child to join us at Whitehall Infant School or if you are already part of our community. We look forward to you being part of the Whitehall Infant School family.

You will be aware that schools are currently closed to the vast majority of children and parents. As a result of the social distancing restrictions in place due to the Covid-19 pandemic, our usual transition arrangements are likely to look very different for children starting school in September. Nevertheless, we are keen to make this time as beneficial to you and your child as possible. We will update this page with useful information that will support that will help your child with their transition to Whitehall Infant School.


We have made a short video introducing you to parts of our school and the Reception area - Welcome to our Reception
