Open Sessions are arranged at the start of a new academic year - dates are usually provided on the school website, in the Parish newsletter and also as part of the school newsletter. This gives you the opportunity to loom around our school and meet our wonderful children. However, due to Covid-19 Pandemic, our usual Open Sessions for entry to Nursery or Reception (2021-22) will not be able to take place. We are have created a video which will provide you with a virtual taster of our school. The link is found on our website under News – Virtual Open Morning Video.

Starting school at St George & St Teresa booklet
In the summer term 2020, the Governors at St George and St Teresa School had planned to offer some limited places to children to start Nursery the term after their third birthday. However, it was decided that during the pandemic and under COVID-19 restrictions this was not possible. The governors will review the possibility of opening Nursery in the summer 2021 for Rising Threes later this academic year. Please check our website in Spring 2021 for an update.
These documents explain how we will work with Solihull Council throughout the application process. They also show how places will be offered if there are more applications than places available. They are reviewed and published every year.
