We are pleased to announce that Kerr Mackie Primary School will be holding an open day for prospective parents, on Tuesday 6th July and Wednesday 7th July. Please select two slots from the available list below. Places are strictly limited to 30 families per time slot, with a maximum of two adults per family.  The event is intended to be for adults only. There is no need for children to attend. We will contact you closer to the date to confirm which of your chosen slots you have been allocated.

Here is some information to show you how a typical day in Reception runs, along with other key information such as school uniform, wrap around care and transition information. 

You shall receive a letter from school with your 1:1 stay and play date and time. Please contact us if you have not yet received this information. 

Classes and teachers will be allocated after the 1:1 stay and play sessions. These will be sent out to you with the group stay and play sessions and start dates for September. 

Meet the teachers! 

Here is a video to introduce you to your new teachers! They are going to share a little bit about themselves with you, so you can begin to get to know them.   

They are all very excited to meet you and get to know you! 

We know starting school is a big change and can feel a little bit scary, but it is in fact lots of fun!  

We hope this story read by Miss Pickering will help you to see some of the exciting things you will be doing at school!
