Children starting school in September 2020


Welcome to Gurnard Primary School!


We are delighted that you have chosen Gurnard Primary School for your child to start their exciting new learning journey.  The school will be providing lots of opportunities for you and your child to get to know our school and staff before they start school.  Whist the school is closed we will do as much as we can virtually and then, as soon as schools and settings re-open, we will arrange a programme of events including ‘stay and play’ sessions, information meetings and home visits.    

On this page we will be sharing lots of ideas about how you can help to prepare your child for school as well as additional information about Early Years at Gurnard Primary School.

If you need to contact us, or if there is anything that you are unsure of, please do not hesitate to email us at parents@gurnardprimaryschool.co.uk.  We very much look forward to meeting you all - both virtually and in person!



Phase 1 Phonics 

One of our Reception teachers, Mrs Givens, has been busy making videos to help parents teach phonics to their pre-school children at home.  The activities are aimed at 3 and 4 year olds that are due to start school in September.  We hope you enjoy them.
