New Intake 2019

If your child has received an offer to join our Reception Class in September 2019, this page will take you through the acceptance and induction process right up until your child's first day at school on Thursday 5th September.  General school information such as calendar events, term dates, school uniform and policies is provided elsewhere on the website.

18th April 2019 - Welcome to Crawley Ridge Infant School!

If your application for a place in our Reception year has been successful you should by now have received your formal offer from Surrey County Council.  Over the next few days, you will also receive from us a letter of welcome and a form to complete and return.  In order to accept or decline your offer of a place there are two steps to complete:

  1.  Contact Surrey Couty Council to accept or decline your offer AND
  2.  Complete and return to us by 26th April the form enclosed with your welcome letter

During the week commencing 6th May, our Early Years Leader, Mrs Samuels, will be contacting your child's nursery to gather information that will assist us in helping your child settle into their new school.  Where appropriate, Mrs Samuels will also arrange to visit the children in their nursery setting.

The first induction meeting for parents will be held on Wednesday 15th May, starting at 7.30 pm. Unfortunately we are unable to accommodate children at this event, but as you will see from the induction programme there are events planned for the children to visit the school to meet their future classmates and teachers a little later in the summer term.

We are delighted to welcome you to Crawley Ridge Infant School and look forward to getting to know you all.  Should you have any questions at all regarding your child's induction please don't hesitate to contact us through the School Office on 01276 27546 or by email at
