Starting school


Is Aldermaston Primary School right for my child?”


It’s the big question you’re asking yourself, right? And with so many wonderful schools in the local area, we’re not going to claim we’re ‘the best’ because that’s your decision. You know your child better than anyone else - you know what sort of environment they’ll thrive in, and what’s going to make them feel safe and happy as they embark on their journey to school.

Here, we’re going to provide an overview of what life is like at Aldermaston Primary School, and then invite you in to see it for yourself. Our head teacher, Mrs Higgs, will give you a personal tour of the school, while answering any question you have about how our school would meet the needs of your child.


But first things first…

How do you determine which is the best school for your child?

Looking at schools for the first time is pretty daunting, but don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. With the help of both primary and secondary school teachers, a headteacher and educational consultant, we’ve put together a checklist to help you cover off all the important items and questions you need to be ticking off as you look around and compare your options.

Getting to know our school



Our early years’ curriculum contains seven areas:

  • Communication and language
  • Physical development
  • Personal, social and emotional development
  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding of the world
  • Expressive arts and design


Every term we teach each subject within an overarching theme. We do this to put the lessons learned into a real-life context, making it easier for our children to relate to, understand and remember it.

When you enrol your child at Aldermaston, it’s about more than just being a student at the school – it’s about becoming part of the wider community.




We want you to be able to visualise what school life is really like, and to share that vision with your child to overcome any nerves they may be feeling.
