Key Information 


Earlsmead Primary School caters for children from Reception to Year 6. A maximum of 60 pupils can be admitted to each year group, usually divided into two classes. Opening in September 2015, we also have an Additional Resource Provision for up to 12 pupils with Moderate Learning Difficulties. This is an exciting development for our school and for special needs provision in South Harrow.
The school gates open at 8.45am, when pupils are welcomed into their classrooms. School starts at 8.45am and ends at 3.15pm. 
Starting School for the First Time
Starting school is one of the most important times in your child's life. Deciding which primary school you want to send your child to is an important decision.
All children who are five between September and August start school in September. Not all children will start on the same day and you will be given a start date for your child. At first the children attend school for the morning session and when they are settled they will stay to lunch and then eventually all day. This varies according to each child’s needs.
Even if your child has been at a nursery or pre-school it can be a big change in both your daily lives when they start primary school. Separation on that first day can be difficult for both of you, but children soon come to realise that school is fun and an interesting place to be. We will work with you and your child to ensure they settle well, safely and quickly.


Joining Earlsmead as a Result of Moving
If you join Earlsmead as a result of moving, we aim to make the change as easy a possible. Each child is given a ‘buddy’ who shows them around and keeps an eye on them for the first few days. Staff and pupils all work hard to ensure new-comers feel at home.
