Open Events for Reception

Welcome to our 2020 Open Events for Reception pupils and parents/carers. Whilst current circumstances sadly mean we can’t invite you into school in the way we would have hoped, we hope that the variety of videos and information below give you a taster of all that CFS has to offer. We also welcome any individual questions you have – as outlined below. No question is too small; choosing a school is an important decision and we want to support you in the process in any way we can.

We do hope you enjoy looking at our virtual Open Event resources; whilst they have been designed for you to peruse and dip in and out of at your leisure, we recommend that you view them in the order listed.

1.       Welcome Video from Principal, Mrs Louise New
2.       Virtual Tour of the Schoolvideo guiding you around our fantastic, award winning new facilities.
3.       Head of Primary’s Presentationvideo of Mr Hanna’s presentation for parents, outlining key information about the School
4.        Why Choose CFS? - with so much information from many different schools, here we have provided an overview of what we believe makes CFS special.
5.       Frequently Asked Questionsanswers to some of the questions we are often asked.

General Details

Individual Questions – We are not conducting any live question and answer sessions at a specific time, as we want you to be able to ask individual questions at a time convenient to you. We are also keen for you to be able to liaise with the specific members of staff most relevant to your query e.g. our SENCo team for children with special educational needs. Therefore, if you have any further questions please do not hesitate to email admissions@chichesterfreeschool.org.uk, or call the School Office on 01243 792690.  We will ensure that an appropriate member of the team gets back to you within two working days of your query (we are on half term from 23 October – 2 November).

Further to this, do have a look at our website for more information about the School, including our Welcome Page from the Principal, and information about how to apply to CFS in the Admissions section. The video links above will take you to our CFS You Tube Channel. On here you will find several videos that we created during Lockdown.  Whilst we hope to not have to face such a situation again, these give you a further taste of the CFS community, educational provision and pastoral support.

Remember that applications for either a Year 7 or a Reception place must be made to West Sussex County Council.  Deadline for Year 7 applications is 31st October 2020 and for Reception its 15th January 2021.
