Welcome to Catshill First School and Nursery. As we are currently unable to offer Open Days to view the school, please find below information regarding our Reception intake and admissions.

Reception September 2021 Intake Information

A warm welcome to you from our Reception team. If you have been allocated a place in our Reception classes by Worcestershire County Council then you will receive an email from us by Friday 23rd April 2020. This will give you details of our transition arrangements and parents’ information sessions. Please check your ‘junk mail’ in case it is there. If you have not received an email and believe you should, then please contact the school office.

We are a 60 place Reception unit which has 2 classes of 30 children. Each class has its’ own classroom with a shared creative space as well as a garden and ‘Imagination Station’ – this is our third classroom where large construction, role play, music and many more activities happen. The Reception classes also have a playground they use, particularly at break and lunch times.
