Admission to Reception​​​​​​

Admissions to Reception at Churchfields Infants' School must be made online to the Redbridge admissions team.  Please see the link below. 

Tours of the School 

Tours of the school for Reception admissions take place in the Autumn term.  We encourage prospective parents to visit us so you can decide if this is the school for your child.  You will be able to meet the Headteacher, listen to a short presentation, ask questions and see our school in action.  We look forward to welcoming you to Churchfields Infants' School. 

Please contact our admin team to make an appointment.  Our next tours (for children due to start Reception in September 2021) will take place from October 2020.
