About Our School
Glenmead Primary School is mainly a two-form entry school for 4-11 year olds, with an admission limit of 60 pupils per year.
We are very lucky to have a large campus which offers green spaces, large playgrounds, trees and a playing field. Our Early Years outdoor area is a varied and appealing space dedicated to stimulating learning outside the classroom for our youngest pupils.
Glenmead Primary School is dedicated to safeguarding our pupils. As such, the school site is kept secure throughout the school day with secure access to all external doors. All gates, except the main gate, are locked during the school day. Parents and visitors may only enter the school through the main entrance on Glenmead Road.
During the current COVID-19 pandemic, we have limited the number of adults who are permitted onto the school campus. This is part of our risk assessment. As such, the main gate on Glenmead Road is locked during the school day. Visitors should telephone the school office to gain admittance.
On Monday 6th September, we look forward to welcoming back all of our pupils. We will be operating with a version of the raft of controls that were in place last academic year. Some control measures have been removed, while others have been retained. An updated and amended version of our risk assessment can be found through this link:
