New Parent Info


Will your child be starting in Reception at Whiteknights Primary School in September 2019?

If so, we would like to welcome you to our school.

Starting school is a major event in the life of a four year old and we know that you as parents/carers will want to ensure that you are able to prepare your child for this new chapter in their life.  If you have any questions then feel free to email: or phone the school office on 0118 987 2588.
