Reception September 2023

Thank you for chosing Rudyard Kipling Primary School and Nursery as your choice for Reception 2023. RKPS is a nurturing academic school where our children thrive and achieve their best. We are proud of our diverse and creative curriculum which makes the learning engaging, challenging and practical. Our school grounds consist of two sports fields, three playgrounds, and a Forest School. At Rudyard Kipling Primary School & Nursery, Learning is an Adventure!

Our May 2022 Ofsted report is glowing and can be read below.

We are proud to provide a first class early years provision with our school nursery catering for 2-4 years olds. This provides a stable and smooth transition into our Reception classes. For more information regarding our 2 year old class and our preschool (3 & 4 year olds) please visit our Nursery page.

In the coming weeks, documents will be uploaded to this page which will give you all the information you need prior to your child starting at RKPS. You will also receive an individual welcome pack that will provide all relevant start dates and registration details in due course.

If you haven't already and would like a tour of our school, please feel welcome to give us a call. We would be delighted to show you around. To reserve book your tour, please call the school office on (01273)303328.
