We believe that no two learners arriving at Rodbourne Cheney Primary School are the same. Students come from different backgrounds, bring different experiences, and have different needs and interests. From the moment your child arrives in our school, they can be sure of a warm welcome and receiving help and guidance from their teacher as they become part of a new family here at Rodbourne Cheney Primary School.
At the heart of what we do is making sure our new arrivals:
- Are happy, settled, and secure.
- Feel a part of school life as soon as possible.
- Enjoy their learning.
- Make friends.
- Know who to go to for those all-important conversations.
- Are ready to achieve outstanding success.
- Are supported if English is not their first language.
We believe our children deserve nothing less, and we will do the very best for them.

New Starters - What to Expect
Children are admitted to school in the September of the year in which they are five and will be admitted to school full time after their initial induction period. Priority for admission will go to children living in the catchment area and will be agreed according to the Swindon Admissions Policy during June.
Children will be invited to attend for a series of visits to the Reception Class before they start on a daily basis. Prior to these visits, and admission to the school, the class teacher will make a home visit when parents will have an opportunity to talk to her, fill in the necessary forms and receive a Brochure.
