Welcome to Brackenbury Primary School. We are a community school located on the south coast in Portslade-by-Sea.
National Offers Day - April 18th 2016
A Warm Welcome
We extend a very warm welcome to those of you whose child has been offered a place at Brackenbury to start in September 2016.
We look forward to developing our partnership with you over the next few months so you and your child feel ready to start school in September. We know that whilst this is an exciting time for you and your child you may have lots of questions about what happens next and about our wonderful school in general!

What happens next?
School Admissions have produced a booklet which aims to support you through the whole admissions process. You are likely to have come across this already but it is available here.
By May 2nd you must, "either accept or refuse the school place offered. If you do not reply, the offer may be withdrawn." "You will receive an email (or a letter) from the School Admissions Team informing you which school your child has been allocated... If you want to accept the place you have been offered, you should complete and return the Pupil Registration Form (a link is provided in the decision email) to the school at which your child has been offered a place."
In June we will liaise with local pre-schools and nurseries to visit your child in their current childcare setting.
Don’t worry if your child is the only child going to Brackenbury from their setting, we will still visit. We take from a range of pre-schools/nurseries and so we ensure we have a big emphasis on supporting the children to form friendships during the first term (and beyond where needed).
You and your child will be then be invited to come along to an information session about starting school and to meet your child's teacher.
If you have any queries/questions please don't hesitate to contact us.
We have a fantastic PTFA (Parents, Teachers and Friends Association) who have their own facebook page (search for Parents Teachers and Friends of Brackenbury Primary School).
