Starting School Information for September 2022

A very warm welcome to Pirehill First School.....

Karen Williamson-Smith - Headteacher

A big “Hello” to all of our new prospective parents and families from everyone here at Pirehill First School!

Our Saturday Open Morning, which we hold every October, is usually our first opportunity to welcome you all to Pirehill and show you around our lovely school. Sadly, due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, this is proving to be very difficult this year. We would really like to give you all the opportunity to see Pirehill First School in action and so I have arrange 4 dates when Pirehill will be open for visitors during the working day. To ensure that we keep everyone as safe as possible the visits will be for parents/carers only and we kindly request that you take a Lateral Flow Test on the day of your visit. Face coverings will need to be worn and we ask that no one in your household, including yourself, has COVID-19 symptoms or is unwell in any way.


The dates and times can be seen below and we will be limiting each visit to 5 parents. Please contact the school office on 01785 334970 if you would like to book a visit.

Please remember you can also follow us on Twitter @PirehillFirst. We upload information and photographs daily during term times so this really is an excellent way to keep up to date with everything we are doing. Our Twitter account can also be accessed directly from the home page of our school website.

Selecting a school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will make and so if you do have any questions at all, or just need to talk things through, then please do give me a ring on 01785 334970 or drop me an email at  and I will do my very best to answer your questions.


I look forward to meeting or speaking to you all very soon,
