Year R September 2021

Welcome to Leesland C of E Infant School

A 'virtual tour' of Year R and our infant school in Gosport, Hampshire.

Hello and welcome to Leesland! 


We're really excited that you are thinking about joining us in September 2021 and starting your school journey with us here at Leesland


Some of you may know us already if you have an older child at one of our schools.  For some of you, this will be the first time you have had a child starting school.  It is an exciting time, but we know it can also be a little daunting.  Choosing a school for you child is an important decision.  


Because of the current restrictions in place to keep everyone safe and well, we are not able to have our usual programme of visits to school just yet. There are a number of things that we are having to do a bit differently.   


We have made a video to show you around our school and Year R.  You are also encouraged to get in touch by phone or email to arrange a phone call with Mrs Wigley (Associate Headteacher) or Mrs Rendall (Assistant Headteacher & Year R Leader) so you can ask any questions.  If you let us have your contact details we will deliver goody bag for your child and send you an invitation for an online Dough Disco for you and your child.  


We all hope to see you very soon and we will keep in touch smiley
