Reception 2021 Intake

Welcome to Mereworth Community Primary School

At Mereworth, we know that finding the best possible primary school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will ever make. Although we are unfortunately unable to offer our usual programme of events for prospective parents this year, we know how vital it is for you to have as much information as possible to help you make the right choice for your child.

In addition to our virtual tour and presentations from key staff members and current children below, we are delighted to be able to offer you the opportunity to meet key members of staff and ask questions in a Zoom session in January.

These Zoom sessions will replace our planned tours of the school and will take place on:

  • Tuesday 5th January at 5pm
  • Tuesday 12th January at 5pm

If you wish to register for one of the Zoom sessions, please email the school office: office@mereworth.kent.sch.uk confirming your preferred date, your name and contact details (email and phone number) and your child’s full name and date of birth.

We will then send you the login details for the session.
